In short I just received my CVA Apex barrel back from a slufoot conversion. WGK has been a super outlet for my questions. Now I am almost ready to shoot. I have most items for shooting but lack powder & some scales to weigh the powder. WGK told me what to get but I have lost my notes. Figured I would ask you guys what you use. Thanks!!!
I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
nor the arrow for its swiftness,
nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.

Pretty much any beam type reloading scale will work. Just depends on how much you want to spend on one.

And I'll suggest H4198 for powder, few different types will work though.

I use a MGM digital scale with great results... About $26 on amazon.
60gr H4198 with either a 195 Barnes or 200gr SST wrapped in a harvester light blue sabot.....

X2 on what he said. I do knurl the Barnes a little.

Exact load as mentioned above. These results for me are at 100 yards. 195's are the top 2 shots. Bottom 2 are the 200gr SST's. I believe the 1 on the right was a barnes as well, but I yanked the trigger on that one \:\) Temp was in the 30's that day. I will be using the barnes during MZL this year.
