Perhaps you are maxing out the scale and getting a gibberish reading ?

I use a RCBS single beam powder scale that I used to use for reloading at one time.

I also bought a cheap digital scale, but unfortuantely it does not weigh in grains.
It now gets used in the spam.

I figured out after my last post you were using two alum inserts. I made up 3 Easton power bolts the other day with 100gr brass inserts that came up to 344gr and i figure they would be good even with 75 or 90 gr broadhead up to 150 but 100 is the lowest i will go if i keep them.I just like to play with different set ups when i can.
