Seems like it sticking and never be the same measurement. I made sure the pointer wasn't hitting anything . Is there anything else I can do before I go go and by another one lol

If its stored in styrofoam there is a good chance it's built up static electricity. Wipe it down good and see if that helps.

I keep it in the box it came in. It's only about 2 months old . I try to wipe it down and see.

Digital scales have their share of problems also. Do your research before you buy.

Based on all the beam scales and digital scales I used in college, for absolute accuracy I'll take a beam scale any day. Make sure the joints are free of debris and I assume you're using a powder trickler? RCBS stands behind their products and I'm sure they'll replace it if it's defective.

from my dealings with a beam scale and a digital. I will take a beam any day. Call RCBS and ask them, I have real good luck with them, every time they sent me new parts at no cost and fast.
