wondering how you guys take your measurements.
I don't. In fact, the idea is new to me, despite having been at this reloading business for many years.
My first reaction to the question was "why would you want to do that?". No criticism intended there; the quest for precision is part of the hobby and this, I can see, is another step toward that goal.
If I have any point to make, it's that I haven't found it necessary to add that step to my reloading regimen. I shoot a regular schedule of Bullseye matches and, consequently, load a LOT of .45s. They always chamber; they always go bang; I have my share of clean targets, so they shoot straight if I do.
The most that I do is, occasionally during a reloading session, drop a finished cartridge into a Wilson gauge.
