    I have a friend with a scale and a need to raise a little money. I have never heard of the brand; Ohaus Model #7101-10. Can someone help me out, Jim.

    Ohaus is a big name in scientific scales. If yu intend to use it for reloading, be sure it has a scale that reads weight in grains. For other applications, scales reading in milligrams are preferable.

    Ohaus is the actual maker for just about every reloading company - they change the color and label from red to green to blue, etc.

    This is critical.

    Ohaus has made scales for a very long time and a great many of them have been for scientific, medical, and jewlery use.

    A scale that only weighs in grams, or carats, or whatever would be useless for reloading.

    All reloading data is in grains, with the exception of shotgun shot & black powder.
