Successfully initiated the system, connected it to laptop and did a strain gage test. It's funny --the manual has a picture of the test gage traces with a trace with a curve on it--so I spent 10 minutes flicking the gage trying to get the trace to develop a curve like the one in the manual. lol

Ended up completely disassembling my 6mm creedmoor upper, I figure I might as well clean all the components and get a cast done of the chamber while the gun is apart.

It looks like the only way I can attach a gage is directly in front of the case mouth--I assume that when you enter the measurements for the chamber OD--you use that portion in front of the case mouth? Problem is--isn't that tapered--and therefore does not comply with the .25" consistent thickness to either side of the gage requirement?
If you’re ever hiking in the woods and you get lost, just look up and find the brightest star in the sky and you’ll know which way space is.
I am NOT an expert--I do not have any formal experience or certification in firearms use or testing; use any information I post at your own risk!
