What is the best way you have found to calibrate your digital scale without buying calibrating weights. I have a new digital hanging scale and I think it is a few ounces off.
Dotman I think you have the winning ticket.
The problem is I have seen is that "100 grain" field points and broad heads can range from 95 grains to 105 grains, so a 5% error. A specific type of broad head will be very close to others of the same type, but they may not be exactly 100 grains. So it depends how closely you are trying to calibrate your scale.
If you are off 5 in 100 its 5%, whether you are in grains, ounces, pounds, kilos, grams etc. I believe you shifted your decimal the wrong direction to come up with .0005%
