Default Weighing scales

Well, the deeper I get into this sport the sadder my questions get, but what I'd like to know is there a specific known accurate set of weighing scales that people are using for weighing the pellets?.

A few yeaes ago bought a set off that auction site for just over a tenner. Said in the description they were accurate to +/- .001. At the time had access to some scales accurate to +/- .00001 where i worked. Checked them and they were as accurate as claimed. These look the same item number 291446362513.

The cheap scales need too long to show a steady weight. In comparison to my other scale for 30 quid, they need double as long. With 500 pellets this gets frustrating.
