Guffey, your comments are exactly what I thought they would be.
All I was doing was referring to the case dimensions measured by gauges made to do so so one could compare the fired case dimension to a full length sized one. Since such case headspace gauges have been available for decades and the term's been used just as long or longer, I thought I would mention it. Your rhetoric doesn't change those facts. Most folks very well understand what I'm referring to and have no problem with it whatsoever.
