I was getting ready to do some reloading for the .270 and for no apparent good reason I decided to measure the 'headspace' of some fired brass. I use a Hornady tool and a Mitsy Vernier. My fired cases measure between 2.041 and 2.043 (de capped with a de capping die) so a 2 thou difference in fired cases. So my question, what variance do you guys get on fired cases and also your resized brass? Brand new Norma brass has a 2 thou variance as well. If I measure the same cases over and over I get the same result so I know its not my measuring.
My resized cases have 1.5 thou variance.
How does this compare with what you get?
