I just sent my RCBS 505 scale back because I couldn't seem to get it to zero out properly. I have since bought an electronic scale but maybe this was my problem.
Only time I have ever had a problem with this is realoading with a progressive press for shotshells (was using IMR 700x). The powder was clinging to the plastic holding tube and some bounce dryer sheets fixed it up nicely.
