Default Need a backup scale?

Saw this on another forum. Midway is selling the RCBS scales, 502 and 505 for $29.99 and $39.99 respectively.

EDIT - The 505 is no longer for sale. As 8mm/06 (thanks) noted, it is back to $99. This means the 502 sale is also likely short lived.

I see the 502 for $29.00, but the 505 is listed for $99.00.

The difference btwn the two is that the 502 is a two poise beam while the 505 is a 3 poise beam. Also the 505 has a whopping 6 grains more weighing capacity. I think they'll perform almost identically for most loading issues, so I'd go for the 502 if you need a scale. $30.00 beats $100.00 for a back-up scale.
