I want to check the headspace before I shoot it.

at one time a friend recommended a quick and dirty way to check headspace

take an empty case put a primer partway in, sticking out about halfway and put it in the chamber and close the bolt slowly then remove the case and see if the primer is even with the bottom or even in a little. It should not be above the base of the case

anyone ever use that method?
