I need a good beam scale and I’d like Made in USA. Login/Join

I need a beam scale for loading pistol ammo. I think the GemPro 250 is on the way out. My normal loads are 3.5 to 4.5 grains.

I’d prefer something made in the USA. The Redding #2 seems good and is supposed to be made in USA.

Anything others I should look at?

Sadly RCBS and Ohass are now made in China Frown...I’m super sad to see this as my USA (Ohass) made RCBS 502 has been 100% for 20+ years and I do wish I could recommend the product again for an American made product...
I have been impressed by the Lyman Brass Smith line of products (made here and great quality)...
From what my experience from their latest turret press tells me I would look at them...

I have used a CH for over 40 years. There are used ones on EBAY.

The large Ohas was/is a great scale... I have two I bought on the cheap at local stores used... once cleaned up the work perfectly.

You see the American made versions on E-Bay and Gunbroker from tdime to time.

There is an Ohas 505 on Eay at the moment.

FWIW

A friend recently passed away and his family just gave me his reloading equipment.
