One piece gage that will check overall length to indicate the need for trimming, datum to head length to assure correct headspace and to prevent over sizing. Available for most popular rimless cases.
The Cartridge Case Gage was designed with safety in mind and was invented by our founder Sam (L.E.) Wilson in 1935 after a fellow shooter approached him for help in solving a case-separation issue. The gage allows you to see just how much you are sizing back your shoulder on your cases. This is best done by measuring a case in AS-FIRED condition. Take a measurement. Resize case on current die setting. Then place back in the gage to see just how much you are sizing the shoulder back. Finally, adjust sizing die accordingly. After sizing your cases, there is a good chance the brass will lengthen. The gage will also check min/max case length and will point out the need for case trimming. This is an essential tool for every reloader.
Note: Does not measure body diameters. This gage is intended to be used with fired cases to determine a basis for full length sizing and trimming.

It is such a simple process to get your sizing dies set correctly and you should never have another problem with your reloads feeding and seating like they should

Bob the Reloader 101 of South Carolina Rating: 5 Stars Date Posted: 7/2/2014 Review: I am a novice Reloader, I reload for volume. I reload 300 blackout, 223, and 6.8. I was having problems with my reloads feeding and chambering. I checked the COL, brass length, bullet seating, as well as the manufacturer's instructions that came with the dies. 300 blackout and 6.8 have tight tolerances. After purchasing case gauges for the aforementioned calipers, I used these to verify my reloads. I found that the reloads that didn't pass the case gauge check would not work in my rifle. I also found that I needed to make several adjustments to the die in order to properly seat the brass to pass the case gauge. This was over and above what the manufacturer stated. I have had no problems with my reloads after this purchase.
