Buying Guide: Best Reloading Scale

Things to Consider Before Buying a Reloading Scale

Reloading your weapons yourself can be quite economical for you. Additionally, it feels good to be able to prepare the ammo yourself. So you’ll know your weapon so well, including every bit of the ammo you put in. Just go through these few things to consider for buying the best reloading scale:

#1 Quality & Accuracy of the Scale

The best scale for reloading must be of a great quality of course, but which factors determine the quality of a reloading scale. It’s the accuracy of its reading that makes a scale the best reloading scale. You need a scale that you can trust for its reading every time you use it, as it’s going to affect the quality of the ammo you’re going to prepare.

#2 Digital Vs Analog Scales

Digital and analog, both types of reloading scales work equally well, still, if you’re too particular about measuring the powder without even having any doubt for a milligram, you should go for a digital one. It’s better to read a few powder scale reviews for deciding which type of reloading scale would be better for you.

#3 Size and Weight of the Reading Scale

Lightweight and small size reloading scales are always easy to carry along, but for some of you, it might not be a matter of concern at all. Still, if you can find all the desired features in a compact and handy reloading scale, it would be amazing.

#4 The capacity of the Reloading Scale

It totally depends on your ammo requirements that how much capacity you’d like to have in your reloading scale. Ideally, its capacity should be good enough for preparing enough ammo for your one-time shooting requirements.

#5 Your Preferred Measuring Units

In most of the quality reloading scales, you’ll get more than one measuring unit to measure your powder accurately. So just see if the scale you’re buying gives reading in your preferred measuring units or not.

#6 Easily Operable

A reloading scale must be easily operable and must be efficient in its functioning.

#7 Affordability

The cost of reloading scale must be according to your allocated budget, but sometimes investing a little more for getting a better quality reloading scale can be even more beneficial in the long run.

For someone who loves to shoot, owning the best reloading scale is as important as owning the best rifles and guns. Having your own accurate reloading scale with you means that you can reload your weapons with perfection yourself. So just keep these points in mind to get the one which suits your reloading requirements the best.

Hot Tubs

Not everything in life can be about responsibilities, they are very important as values along with other characteristic anyone should have, but they are not everything in life: The work hard, play hard, in dieting could be placed as 80-20 rule, should too be applied. And there is nothing more satisfying than a well deserved bath on a hot tub. This is the perfect solution to space issues in comparison to a pool and have all its benefits. It is the perfect tool to relax and exercises, for there are many exercises that can be done in reduced spaces and water will help to make a huge jump on any routines for it helps to burn calories faster and reduces impact on joints and there is really nothing better than see all efforts paid this well.

            Before going into the main issues of hot tubs, it is important to know what exactly are those small pools everyone talks about as if they were heaven on earth. This is because they are perfect for basically everything, it fits on every clear space, from open gardens in reduced spaces such as bathrooms or even boats, they are designed to be an outdoor relaxation tool, but they can be too indoors, helping design issues as a hot tub will give an atmosphere a fancy look, improving any space into a real me-myself-I room. Also, it will make relaxation a daily issue with all its facilities so, which also improves productivity and health issues by eliminating the most common cause of headaches, fatigue and soreness: stress. This is thanks to their convergence of buoyancy, heat and massages to prevent health issues as well as relieving the tension on muscles and joints, also balancing blood flow.  A hot tub can do that and much more, but as a multifunctional as any object can be with a little imagination (or common sense) shaping bodies in the way by providing an exponential improve on the results of calisthenic exercises and some more that aren't aerobic (mission accomplished because they have the restriction of water density), burning more calories than exercise  Always knowing that there is too, the fact that it is a relaxing spot of any complex where the hot tubs fits. So far, this is likely to repay the inversion very well in health, relax and productivity.

As for this kind of inversion, its is important the pros and contras of at least 3 good options: The American Standard 9075.120 Safe-T-Heater, for example, is an easy to use product that keeps water hot and is easy to install and to use, strong and reliable. The OrangeA 11KW 220V Pool Heater Thermostat Swimming Pool SPA Hot Tub Electric Water Heater Pump Assistant Digital Thermostat is more of a durable-style hot tub, it has safety sensors and also heats water easily and fast. Finally the Raypak 11Kw Electric Spa Heater 001640, which can be fitted to most hot tubs, copper and bronze housings, also has a proficient heating system and a 2 year warranty that ensures the quality of an inversion as this one. They all at least maintains the temperature of the water to keep all comfort and relaxation, also economizing a bit the energy consume of the household. Also, they are all very easy to work with, but it is important to know they, too, need their maintenance, which includes the cleaning of the area and technological check up to prevent this artefacts get damaged.

The reality is, apart from all above, it is important to know that there is just one weak point in a hot tub option, which is exactly the same as for pools, which is that they do harbor a lot of bacteria and gives mosquitos a place to multiply. Also, chlorine or bromine used in hot tubs can irritate the skin, nose and respiratory system if they are not taken care of. Aside from this, and perhaps some punctual and individual inconvenience, hot tubs should not give more problems that they solve.

As much as it is said, hot tubs should be the next cell phone in history for all the common problems they solve, given the comparison to a built up necessity. Hot Tub Sanitizers. They are perfect for time issues, stress, tension and won't absorb more time that it requires, also,  they won't consume that much energy nor use as nothing the same amount of water as a normal bath (altho hot tubs are about 230 liters, a well deserved 20 minute shower will too spend about 200 liters) they will most likely keep water temperature, or increase it just a little bit, and it means total comfort for the owner and total caution. Also, there is nothing better than to get home after a long working day, full of responsibilities and know all that effort did payed off.


Stitch Fix Summer 2016

I got rid of all subscription boxes/services a few months ago because I felt like my life was slowly filling up with random stuff I had no use for. The idea of getting makeup samples every month was really intriguing and exciting at first, but when you have boxes full of sample size products you’ll never get through, especially with new ones coming in every month, it loses it’s appeal. I always liked the idea of the personal stylist services, and loved DailyLook Elite while I did it, but similarly I couldn’t justify getting new things every month. When I originally looked into stitch fix I was only going to do it once for the honeymoon, but when I saw that they had options to get fixes every month, every other month, quarterly, or just on demand I was hooked, finally a service I could sign up for and not feel overwhelmed with the amount of stuff they sent me. I signed up for the quarterly service and just received my second box and wanted to share what I got. If you are interested in signing up for stitch fix you can use my referral link (or just go straight to the site if you’d prefer).
Stitch Fix Navy Top

Moni Studded Short Sleeve Blouse | $54.00 | Returned

I was uncertain about this shirt the second I opened the box, but on first glance through my fix I considered purchasing the full thing and I thought I could be happy with this if I paired it correctly. That was all before I tried it on, instantly I knew I would be returning it because the sleeves were too tight around my arms, they actually hurt and I only had the thing on for all of a minute for this picture. When I first came out in it Bryan just said “no”, so it was pretty unanimous that this was just not for me.
Stitch Fix Red and Navy Maxi Dress

Brian Knit Maxi Dress | $78.00 | Returned

This dress was super comfortable and I really wanted to like it, but the color is just not right for me, the bright cool tone red does nothing for me so if I had kept this it never would have gotten worn in my closet.
Stitch Fix Navy Sweater

Evie Draw String Funnel Neck Sweatshirt | $64.00 | Kept

The second I saw this I knew I would be keeping it assuming it fit well, the second I put it on I knew it would be my new favorite sweatshirt, and the second I walked out for Bryan to take my picture he said “that looks like you” and it was a done deal. I will be living in this sweatshirt now!
Stitch Fix Multicolored Top

Yorken Scoop Neck Top | $44.00 | Returned

I had a really hard time with this one, I went back and forth on whether or not I was going to keep it, actually looking at the picture now part of me wishes that I had, but I ultimately returned it because I was only keeping one other thing and while I like this top, it isn’t “me” in the same sense so many other things in my closet are and I feel like if I bought it I would skirt around it most days.
Stitch Fix Gold Leaf NecklaceHadid Layered Leaf Necklace | $28.00 | Returned

I went back and forth on this necklace. I really liked it and if I had kept more and made this into a bigger shopping event I would have kept it, but when I ended up keeping just the sweatshirt I couldn’t justify keeping the necklace. I’m not even sure if that makes any sense, but it does (mostly) in my head, so we’re just going with it.

That’s what I got this quarter from Stitch Fix, do you subscribe to a similar service, what did you get this month? 

Life Lately: 7/10/16

The first week back after a long vacation is always difficult, but this one was extra exhausting since I started a new work schedule this week which has me waking up quite a bit earlier than I was before. It should open my schedule up to give me more time to do some things I’ve been wanting to do for awhile, so it will be well worth it, but this first week has been anything but a cake walk. A lot has happened since my last update so let’s get right to this, shall we?

With my new schedule I’m leaving the house before Bryan most mornings which means I can’t exactly flood the room with light to get a good picture so we’re settling for bathroom selfies..

While I did not read as many books as I had picked out during our honeymoon (let’s be honest I never really thought I would read that much) I did get quite a bit of reading done in the past few weeks.

What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriary single-heart

Listening To
Now that I am back from our honeymoon, it is officially time to start training for the pole competition I signed up for in November, which means I am starting to listen to my song quite a bit as I am beginning to figure out my character and choreography.

All of our wedding photos!!! My photographer was absolutely amazing, if you are in the Seattle area and need a photographer for engagement, wedding, boudoir, senior portraits, family, maternity, etc I can not recommend Jenny enough, she was per joy to have around during this whole process and she makes magic with her lens! Until I get a chance to go through everything and put together my own recap posts
go check out her blog post about our wedding and be blown away by her mad skills.

Our new vacuum cleaner. Does that sound too domestic? Whoops, maybe getting married did change me after all. Seriously though, we went this weekend to finalize our registry, returning a couple of things and picking up a couple of things that are still on there, the main thing being our new vacuum cleaner which I have been eyeing and drooling over since Christmas when my brother-and-sister-in-law (aww that’s official now too!) got the same one.

Working On
Writing more, including blogging more. I have a ton of pictures from the honeymoon and wedding, and tons of other ideas buzzing through my head, plus my new schedule gives me an extra hour most days of the week which I have decided to dedicate to writing. So hopefully you will be seeing a lot more of me around these parts.

ATV Tour Moorea, French Polynesia

Looking Forward To
Being Mrs. Holzer, like officially, legally, totally, completely, everywhere. I knew that changing my name would be a big task, but I wasn’t prepared for the feeling I would feel when people ask me what my name is or I have sign an email. I’m having a bit of an identity crisis being halfway in between names right now, none of my cards, ids, accounts match anymore and I’m not entirely sure what legally the correct answer to “what’s your name?” is, and that’s a really strange feeling.

A Letter To Myself (and all the other brides out there)

Sometimes it easier to give advice to someone outside yourself, with that in mind I often try to think of myself as a separate person, someone I can give advice to without the internal conflict of my actual feelings at the moment. I’m getting married tomorrow, and it felt like a good time to write myself a little letter, a little reminder to enjoy the day.

Dear Bride,

It’s finally here, the big day, the one you have dreamed of in some small form since you were a little girl, the one that you have tirelessly planned and scrutinized over for the past 11 and half months, the one in which you become a Mrs. and officially become a wife to the man you have grown to love and cherish for the past 7 years. I know you thought this day was never going to get here, that the late nights stressing over all the little details felt like they were never going to end, but it’s here, you made it!

Now I need you to take a deep breath, no, no, deeper, breath in… out… there you go, keep doing that. All day whenever you feel those butterflies swirling around, your stomach flip, your brain grow fuzzy, the thoughts of trying to control the day start drifting into your brain, come back to this, breath in… out… in… out… take a second, look around you, squeeze Bryan’s hand tighter, lean in to your father, hug your maid of honor, let your mother kiss you on the cheek, smell the flowers in your bouquet, dance up on your bridesmaid, laugh with the groomsmen, take a sip of wine, joke around with your brother, give a goofy grin to your photographer, repeat those vows you picked to yourself, and just be present in the moment.

It will be so tempting to double (even triple, quadruple) check the schedule you spent hours perfecting to make sure everything is going as planned, I know, I know how your brain works, but don’t do it. You will want to make sure all the decorations are in order, all the escort cards lined up, all the guests enjoying themselves, but don’t worry yourself with any of these things. You have spent so many hours, so many days planning, nights stressing, all so that on this day you could relax and enjoy the day, so let yourself. When the anxiety hits, because we know it will, take a deep breath, count the reasons you love Bryan, and sink into the day. Let the makeup artist do her job and pamper you, let the day of coordinator do hers and run the show, let your bridesmaids do theirs and shield you from whatever is going on, let all of those vendors and plans you put so much effort into show you how amazing they all are.

And when something inevitably goes wrong, whether your dress rips, you trip down the aisle, the flowers never show up, it pours down rain, or the DJ plays the wrong song for your first dance, whatever it may be, laugh at it, remember that this is the story you will tell your children some day when they are stressing over their own wedding. Remember that this is the moment that you will cherish later and laugh at for years to come. Remember that this day is about love, not the details it has felt like it was about for the past year.

Most of all, enjoy yourself, let yourself be swept away by the love pouring out around you. Kiss Bryan longer, hug him harder, smile bigger, laugh louder, dance bolder, be freer than you have been ever before. This day is the first day of a new and exciting chapter in your life, kick it off with joy.

Congratulations Mrs. Holzer, you and Bryan deserve all the love on this day and all the days to come!

Honeymoon Reading List

We are days away from the wedding, which also means we are less than a week from Honeymoon time, and I could not be more excited for that! Between wedding plan and just normal life in general I am more than ready for a vacation and some solid time relaxing on the beach with my husband (ahh can’t believe that is going to be a real word in a few days!). I have been looking forward to laying around reading on my honeymoon for quite some time now so of course I have been saving up books for the occasion, and today I want to share the books I’m bringing with me.

I’m usually all about Gone Girl -esque books or non-fiction books where I can learn a little something about business, life, psychology, etc. but neither of those seemed the appropriate genre’s to bring on a honeymoon. So I rounded up some other books on my to read list that will hopefully be perfect for relaxing in the sun as a newlywed.

Starting off with the audiobooks that I am bringing along. I don’t know how much of these I’ll get through, it really depends on the trip, but I like having some handy for things like being too tired on the plane to read, but not tired enough to actually fall asleep, or if I can’t sleep at night they are nice to listen to for a bit until I get sleepy.

  • The Vacationers by Emma Straub – I have this on hold through Overdrive from the library right now and am hoping I get it before we leave. It sounded like a fine read and the scenery and location of the novel make it honeymoon worthy to me.
  • Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter – Last I checked I could get this through Overdrive without a hold so I’m hoping that’s still the case when we are getting closer to leaving so I can grab it really quick. This is another one that just struck me as a good beach time summer read.
  • The Last Anniversary by Liane Moriarty – This one isn’t quite as honeymoon-y as the other books I have picked out, but I own it on audible right now and haven’t started it yet so it’s there mostly as a safety net if I run out of other options.

Hold in Your Hand Books
Yes, I realize that seems like a weird way to describe books, but the next section is Kindle books, so these are actual books that you hold in your hand, not digital. Can I just say how ridiculous it is that I even need a word for this, it used to just be books. Anyways these books are ones that I have at home and just wanted to get through and felt would fit the honeymoon vibes while not being too large that I didn’t want to pack them.

  • What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty – This one I just recently started so I want to bring it to finish it before starting something else, that being said the premise behind the book while not a light, fun, beach read, seems somewhat applicable to a honeymoon. Alice is 29, happily married, with a baby on the way and then wakes up at 39 and everything is falling apart but she doesn’t remember the last 10 years, since I’m close to Alice at 29 (not quite, but close) and I too would be devastated if I woke up 10 years from now and realized my life was in shatters, I think the lessons in the book are perfect for a newlywed.
  • Adventures for Your Soul: 21 Ways to Transform Your Habits and Reach Your Full Potential by Shannon Kaiser – I’ve been wanting to read this one for awhile. It’s all about reaching your potential and being happy and being your best version, and since getting married is one of those life events that can be taken as a new beginning it seems like a perfect time to finally read it.

And finally, the meat of my honeymoon reading. I love my kindle, especially for occasions like this, it’s super easy to pack and you get so much content out of one little device, plus all the books are always much cheaper on kindle than when you buy the paperback version. Most of the books in this category are romance novels, because well, it’s my honeymoon, what better time to read some cheesy romance novels than laying on the beach next to your new husband?

  • Love and Lists (Chocoholics #1) by Tara Sivec – I read the Chocolate Lovers series a few years ago by Tara Sivec and absolutely loved them. They were funny and light and if I hadn’t of already finished the set, would have been perfect for the honeymoon. Instead I’m picking up the first in the Chocoholics series which features the kids of the characters from the Chocolate Lovers series.
  • A Beautiful Lie (Playing with Fire #1) by T.E. Sivec – I wanted to grab another book by Sivec, because of how much I loved the Chocolate Lovers series, so decided to give A Beautiful Lie a try (ha, that rhymed!)
  • Maybe Someday (Maybe #1) by Colleen Hoover – These next two came as recommendations based on the first two and from friends I have that like romance novels. I don’t really know what to expect, but hoping for the best.
  • On the Island (On the Island #1) by Tracey Garvis-Graves – Same as above, came as a recommendation and hoping for the best.
  • Come as You Are: The Surprising New Science that will Transform Your Sex Life by Emily Nagoski – It wouldn’t be my reading list if it didn’t have a little non-fiction mixed in, this one seemed like the perfect non-fiction read to grab for the honeymoon. I don’t have super high expectations for it, so we’ll see if I’m pleasantly surprised or not.
  • Attachments by Rainbow Rowell – If the romance novels are getting to be too much Rainbow Rowell is someone I can always count on to provide a fun read. I’ve heard so many good things about this book and can’t wait to finally get into it.

What have you been reading lately? Any other suggestions for the honeymoon I should consider picking up? Or suggestions I can grab once we get back to get me through the rest of the summer?

Life Lately: 6/10/16

Hey! What’s up? It’s been awhile, and all the other obligatory things…

We are just one week (and 1 day) away from the wedding so I figured it was about time I checked in on this little forgotten space of the internet I sometimes call home.

2016-04-09 03.21.10 copy

All the white things. I know in the past I said white wasn’t my color, but the wedding is right around the corner and all the showers, parties, and random occasions have me donning all of the white clothes, and I think I found a new color to stick around in my collection!

My reading goal for 2016 is the same as it was in 2015, 50 books. However in 2015 I started the year off with a couple of trips that essentially ended up being nothing but laying around reading so by the time January ended I was already a few books ahead of schedule and just had to stay loosely on track to make it happen. I was worried that I’d get behind this year and then need to catch up during the honeymoon, instead with the honeymoon only a few weeks away I am still right on schedule! I’ve really loved the following books lately:

  • Pretties and Specials from Scott Westerfield’s Uglies Series
  • Furiously Happy by Jenny Lawson
  • Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult
  • The Life We Bury by Allen Eskens
  • Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
  • Pretty Happy: Healthy Ways To Love Your Body by Kate Hudson

Listening To
Lots and lots of throwbacks. I made a playlist for my bachelorette party and another one for getting ready with my bridesmaids on the wedding day and both are full of throwback songs. I’m also working on a playlist for the honeymoon to listen to in the hotel room, full of songs we’ve listened to together over the past 7 years. Basically I’ve found myself saying “ah I totally forgot about that song” way more often than you would think right now.

My spending has been closed to all things outside of wedding and dance. As we are starting to pay the final invoices for all of our vendors it is hard to convince myself that anything is worth any money outside of that.


Bryan, and all my bridesmaids, and friends, and family, basically everyone that is a part of this wedding at all. Everyone always says planning a wedding is so stressful and you end up fighting a lot. While there have been some moments, overall this wedding has taught me that Bryan and I are meant to be together, we work through things so well together, and the love of our family and friends has been so overwhelming, in the best possible way.

Working On
All things pole related, because I did something crazy and signed up for a pole competition in November. I am scared out of my mind because I am so far from ready to get up on stage and dance, but the fear is pushing me to work even harder and I’m really excited to see what comes out of it.

Looking Forward To
The wedding (and the honeymoon)! This feels like it has been a long time coming, Bryan and I have been dating for over 7 years, we’ve been engaged for almost a full year now, and I, being me, have had the wedding planned for months now. All the final small details are falling into place and I’m finding myself sitting here anxiously awaiting the big day and relaxing trip that follows.

Now I would love to hear, what have you been up to lately? Tried anything out you are dying to share?
