Any one tested these the suggested devices against a calibrated balance? I know that the MTM balances often suggested for pellet weighing don't even have the capablility to resolve to 0.1gn.

Any views?

Mine give consistent readings this can be checked against previously weighed pellets. I want groups of pellets within 0.1 of a grain sometimes only .2 of a grain. Not really bothered what they actually weigh so have never cross checked my unit. Certainly seems accurate and quicky produces readings to a 100th of a grain. Will repeat to 100th up or down to this every time if i'm checking the weight. unless the batteries are getting low.
