I've used a Lee scale for more years than I care to admit. I guess they sell for about $20.00 these days. They aren't as easy to use as the electronic scales, but for shotshell reloading, I typically weigh the powder charge about once every 100 shells. I have compared mine to my son's high-powered electronic scale, and from 15 grains to 35 grains, they agree within 0.1 grain - that's good enough for me. The most important part is the initial zero setting; takes a minute to do properly.
Go with either RCBS or Hornady for balance beam scales. Digitals are nice for weighing things like arrows, bullets, etc., but I use the balance beam type (mine is a Hornady) for rifles and shotgun shells. It is actually faster than digitals and there's no battery to worry about.
