Default Dillon eliminator VS RCBS 505 - Is color the only difference?

Like the title says, what's the real difference? Is one "better" than the other? If yes, why? Thank you.

After some research online, apparently, the color and an ounce to grain conversion table are the only differences. Both made by Ohaus, both excellent.

Both the same and both accurate. I've own both and sold the Dillon to raise some fund.

The RCBS retails for more $$ so why the dillon is less popular is beyond me.

I got an eliminator for $40 on eBay a little while ago that looks like it had only been removed from the box to take the auction photo.

I prefer the Blue color vs. the Green color. But then both beat the heck out of my old Lee safety scale. I currently use a Dillon electronic scale that has been re-tuned by the OEM for me to be more reactive.

Got the dillon 10yrs ago. It also has a battery backup as well as shore power. Works fine even after you drop something heavy on it.

I like the blue color too, but that was the best deal I could find at the moment.
