    You do not need an expensive scale - not even for Pyrocat.
    The only substance used at fractional grams is phenidone (well, potassium iodide also).

    Mix you phenidone on very pure alcohol - I use 2% solution (2g in 100cc alcohol). It lasts a long time. If you have some hydroquinone, add a pinch of it to the alcohol before adding the phenidone (increases keeping properties).

    10cc of this solution=0.2g

    Uh ... are you re-stuffing ammunition too?

    I have the RCBS --- what is it ... 500 grain scale, and trickler too. The thing goes to 1/10th grain ... or about 1/150th of a gram.
    Carpe erratum!!

    Naw, don't like guns - don't own one, and never will. It was just a cheaply available, accurate scale.
    Cheers!
