Where can I find a really good page on what headspacing is and how it works? If there is no such page out there, is anyone here willing to write up, and provide pictures for, such a page?

Dangus, the best most clearly written article I've ever seen on the subject is in Vol 1 of Gunsmith Kinks. "Headspace and what it means to you" by P.O. Ackley. I don't know of a webpage that covers it. George

Here's two good websites with excellent, well-illustrated explanations.
