I respectfully disagree that digital calipers are too sensitive... when used correctly. It doesn't take pressure on an item to measure it accurately. I've compared my digital with my dial calipers and they are consistently within .0005" of each other. I really don't see a need to be more accurate than that for reloading. ymmv
