go / no go gauges
has anyone got any .30-06 go and no go guages that i might borrow?
i dont think i have ( as i dont shoot that calibre) - but what are they?
found this but not really that useful.
Go and no-go gauges are used by a gunsmith or armourer to check for correct headspace on a rifle. Just as the names imply the go gauge will chamber and allow the bolt/action to close and the no-go will chamber but will be overlength and should not allow the action to be closed.
Simple and easy to use they resemble snap caps.
Swampy I have go and no go gauges for the 06, but you only need them for a chambering job. After that the field gauge is used to test for safety.
Mine were a ebay bargain - hence i got them for interest.
i need them for a chambering job. i will publish the full results in a little while, dependant on how well it goes!
I would like to borrow them if i could pleas.
Send me a PM and I am sure we can arrange something
