Okay we're assuming you're looking for a weight scale. I don't remember where I bought mine but I did buy it online within Canada. I've seen them for sale in my local sporting goods store. They're used by people who reload their own shells.

What you want is a model that reads in grains not ounces.

I bought mine from AirgunSource.com but it appears they no longer sell it.

Follow this link to another forum discussion on scale recommendations; http://www.airgunforum.ca/forums/post315106.html?hilit=scale#p315106

The one I posted above goes to 1/100 of a grain. So when weighing a pellet you could get 7.92 gr. and you can batch together anything from 7.85 to 7.94 as your 7.9s and 7.75 to 7.84 for your 7.8s, etc.

I can weigh a tin of 500 in less than an hour.

I only use the scale for pellets I am going to shoot in competition or practise for competition.

Gee Mac do you size your pellets too?
If I had to guess I'd say you have OCD. Y'know there's a treatment for that condition.

I do not size pellets and anyone that hnows me would confirm that I am a long way in the opposite direction from ocd.

I just think if you want a scale, why not get one that is appropriate to the job it is intended for and at the same time, costs very little.

Seems this product doesn't get shipped to Canada.

Thanks guys! I don't shoot competition but would certainly like to scale down the groups and try to eliminate uncontrollable fliers. Also get more accurate data for chairgun.

Some pellets that I've purchased don't list their weight. That's why I bought mine.

Again you might get lucky and find one in a sporting goods store. I saw one this past week in a Pronature Sporting store.
