Lee Precision Safety Scale. Old skool but accurate, and I like playing with cleverly-made machines.

If you're just using it to set a powder measure and/or do periodic safety checks, pretty much any of the beam scales will do that.

The Lee safety scale does work. Had one, agreed with all my other scales. Ended up selling it just because I had too many scales.

My personal preference is any of the standard Ohaus made dampened beam-scales. RCBS, Dillon, etc

You do not have to measure every single charge. If you have a good metering powder in a good measure, no need to measure other than as an initial safety check.
