    2015 Shot Show: RCBS Mechanical and Digital Scale(s)

    This thread is to complement Kombayotch's coverage of the new RCBS presses and powder throwers
    http://www.canadiangunnutz.com/forum...essive-Presses

    RCBS is changing around some of their power scales this year.

    For their mechanical scales they are eliminating some models and concentrating them into two versions, the M500 and M1000. They didn't have the M1000 out on display however it is simply a larger version of the M500, with a 1000 grain capacity.

    They are both still the same balance scales that we are used to however all with metal bodies.

    +/- .1 Grain Accuracy
    Numbers printed on both sides to allow for right or left hand use.

    MSRP:
    M500 Mechanical Scale: $99.95
    M1000 Mechanical Scale: $159.95








    On the digital side, RCBS is really changing their form factor and making it smaller overall but having a higher grain capacity.

    The Rangemaster 2000

    2000 Grain capacity
    +/- .1 Grain Accuracy
    Touchscreen LCD
    Battery Operated or AC or DC power
    Includes two calibration weights.

    MSRP: $149.95

    Ive been using the same RCBS balance beam scale for over 30 years that electronic scale looks like something I would like to upgrade to.

    So they're getting rid of the 10-10? Thats a step in the wrong direction IMO.

    Probably a cost reduction or being sourced from a diferent (cheaper) manufacturer
    Shoot often and safely... We stand as one or not at all

    They are trying to simplify production into 2 beam scales and simplify the marketing and manufacturing.

    I've been using the 304 for 20 years now, they should bring it back for those of us that like mechanical precision...
