I have a Hornady Lock-N-Load scale and have been using it for a couple of years now but I recently noticed something weird while using it... I dump gunpowder into the metal powder pan while dialing my machine in but I get a different reading/amount if I have the plastic cover on. It weighs more if I take the cover off. Has anyone else noticed this? Am I doing it wrong? Should I keep it off. I was startled to see the grains jump by .2 or .3 when I took it off. I typically keep the cover on - it has a hole in the middle so I just dump the powder from a brass case down inside it to the pan. I feel like I'm less likely to make a mess with the cover plastic cover on as it would prevent powder from flying everywhere. Thanks in advance.
Got my new issue of Dillon's Blue Press today and noticed a new Dillon D-Terminator electronic scale on page 88. It has a higher capacity than the earlier one, but that doesn't really matter to me because I only reload for pistol. Anyone tried one of these new scales yet? Are they any more accurate than the older version? Mine's getting older and I've been thinking about getting a better scale for backup... Wonder if this new scale would be an improvement?
