Mr. Guffey, Yes I purchased the gauge you spoke of to assist me in reloading. I have a box fed bolt action .50 so here is a silly question...how do you measure for the length of the chamber for a particular(mine) firearm? I have taken this gauge and measured some already loaded factory rounds and some of them even have a gap of .010 from the minimum on the gauge to the case head of the round. If my gap is such, on as yet non loaded cases, will it hurt the gun(and possibly myself) to shoot them or do I need to discard these cases and only load those that meet the criteria in this gauge? Also some rounds were fire formed in my rifle and some were purchased cases and are as yet unfired in my rifle. Thanks.
If you heard the bang,
You weren't the target.
