    I switched to an analogue micrometer for a couple of reasons. First, my electronic one was kinda cheep (same price as the analogue one though) so I had to zero it constantly. It was a real pain. The analogue one almost never needs to be zeroed, like maybe I did once in the entire time I’ve had it.

    I also was thinking about a SHTF scenario and if you’re still reloading an analogue micrometer will work without batteries but an electronic one is done when the batteries run out or if it’s hit by an EMP.

    Still have my first, Speer #9, 1974. Oh, and an analog caliper.

    As a 40 plus year machinist ( recently retired ) electronics are great, BUT you just can’t trust cheepies. My set left over from working are Mahr, top of the line and not cheap but 100% reliable. Dial’s are the best to go on a reloaders budget. Still have my Speer # 10 also, and still use it.
