I bought one a few months ago and have been very happy with it.

I'll go $105. :)

I'm just to cheap to buy a digital when my beam scale works just fine.

Hope you like it though.. Until you get powder you can weigh:
Coins
Bullets
Brass
and many other interesting things
:)

Not many people have buyer's remorse with Dillon products.

Simply put an excellent scale. I also have the analog one however I seldom find myself using anything but the ditigtal (on batteries). Have run several checks over the years and always find it spot on. You made a very good choice for the dollars spent. In fact, of all the Dillin toys I have (e.g. 550B, 600, dies, etc) there's not one item I would give back PERIOD!

I really like my Dillon Terminator, have had mine for several years. Works well, always accurate with my check weights. If I had to replace it however, would really like to try out the scale Brian Enos offers.
On a side note, I was developing loads for my new Remington 700 AAC-SD .308 last night. I threw 70 charges of BL (C) -2 with my Hornady Lock-N-Load Auto Charge Powder Dispenser. I had only one “OVERCHARGE” throughout the session and I think I may have attributed to that by accidentally bumping the bench as I was loading.

No more Lee for me. The furnace is okay, but I'll buy blue from now on.

If it ever goes belly up after 2yrs, Dillon will replace it for 50% of a new one, a good deal. They do NOT offer no BS warranty on elec stuff.:crying:

I've had one for about 2 years now and love it. Spot on with my check weights every time and never noticed the"warm up" some people say electric scales need.

Did anyone else buy the cover for it?

I did. Mostly because I load out in my workshop but keep the scale in the house when not using it. keeps it clean and safe.

I'm just to cheap to buy a digital when my beam scale works just fine.

I have an RCBS/Ohaus 510 beam that is 42 years old and a 502 that I purchased used with a bunch of other stuff. Both work just fine (I've never changed batteries). They hold zero unless you move them. I just can't see the need for a digital.

With that being said, Dillion Products are top shelf.

I use a cheap (probably $10 coupon deal) Harbor Freight digital for setting lead shot weight for shot shells. It is not accurate enough for powder.

I you google the scales, you will see there are a few problems with them.

The cover sucks, though. The hinges come apart too easy.

They're supposed to so you can take it off to use it. There is a hole in the back for the AC adapter also.

I read this link when you posted it, but NOW I know why people like a beam scale with hard to meter powder.

With any scale, the more you move it the more likely it will have problems. My Dterm sits on its own shelf to the left & behind my press, never moves. I use it 2-3x week for the last 5yrs, still running strong. I did replace my 1st gen one with this after 5yrs, started drifting. Dillon replaced it for 50% of the new cost. Supposedly the current models are better, so far so good.

Thanks, Fred. I have no choice but to move it as I have no reloading room. Setup and tear down is about 20 minutes each!

If you lived in Tucson I could tell you where to go and get powder and primers.

I would have got a beam scale over a digital. For me digital scales are a second scale. And check weights keep them all honest. Along with the user.

My RCBS Charge master has outlived the D-T scale (the LCD screen died, heat related). I have yet to replace the D-T besides Dillon's generous offer to do so. I like the looks of the Brian Enos and will pursue it. AND I would never give up my RCBS 5-10, trickler, powder throw set up since we have power outages. Both types of scales have value, calibration is important and the price of a scale is somewhat indicative of quality and reliability. ALL electronic 'stuff' fails over time!
