My Lyman beam at one time I was usen it and it been along time since i was reloading because of the moven and all and I was weight on some loads and no problem and then when i load for some shot loads for 38spl..i shot them in my 357 BH and was able to shoot pigions and it did not seem right after checking the OAL was not right after I was done.So I check with the company about the pin that was moven on the scale and they told me that it was not right so i sent it to them to have it fix and cal..After get it back and check the amount of powder it was way over then what it was to be.but since it was use in a 357 not a 38 spl I found out what it was all for data and then it all work out without anything that was harmful after.You never know what might happened.

Switched over to RCBS electronic scale six years ago and still put check weights on it when reloading. Put them on it every 50 rounds or so. Very dependable though. I just bought the scale part on the big unit.

Having some OCD tendencies is a good thing when reloading .... I always check my balance prior to starting, or if using digital my zero/tare settings .... glad you and your rifle are fine ... things can get scary quick .... be safe and have fun ....
Let the big weight slip up to ten grains and loaded a few pistol rounds before eyeballing the level---glad I did.
