I looked around for something in the 5-6 lb range that had .01oz granularity and they don't really existing at this price point.

Duh...
For some reason I was thinking accurate to 1 ounce. Just slap me.

OK, consider yourself slapped. Thank me later.

If you are going to use it for grain you may want to look at the size of it. I've got one similar to it and it can be a pain weighing out sizable amounts of grain because the weighing surface is so small. Just my.02 worth.

Accurate to 0.1oz does not mean that when it reads 0.5oz it is 0.5oz. What it means is that when it reads 0.5oz you could have anything from 0.4oz to 0.6oz.

I would go for more precision.

Brewiz makes a great point. I bought one very similar and the measuring surface is too small for large amounts of grain. When you put a pot or bucket on top its tippy and you cannot read the display with the bucket/pot on there. I can live with balancing it but look for one that has a detachable display.
