We recently made the addition of Min Dimension Gages to the WILSON line up. Manufactured out of USA brass rod. Some might say why brass? We say, why not? Brass holds tight tolerances, is corrosion resistant, has a similar weight to steel, it is environmentally friendly, 100 percent recyclable, no one else is doing it, and it just looks cool.
As for the gage, it is designed to test your loaded rounds against Minimum SAAMI Chamber Specifications. This can be very useful in pointing out issues with finished loaded rounds.
WHY USE THIS GAGE?
You want your reloaded rounds to chamber in a variety of guns
You want to check for uniformity of your rounds against SAAMI specifications
You want to pin point issues with your reloaded ammunition
You want a quick check to see if you are under MAX SAAMI COAL and want to make sure you rounds will fit in a standard magazine or clip.
You want to check factory ammunition you have purchased
**This Gage is not intended to be used to set shoulder set back or trim length. Please use the Wilson Case Gage. It is NOT recommended to size your cases back to SAAMI spec every time. Overworking your brass will lead to case separation!
Although we believe this material to be safe for handling, the State of California, under Propsition 65, requires us to disclose the presence of Lead in this material.
