    Wilson Case Gage

    Anyone used one of these to set up a FL die?

    L.E. Wilson Case Length Headspace Gage 222 Remington - CG-222R - Midway UK

    I use the cheap and cheerful method of masking tape on the end of the case with the bolt stripped of the firing pin to lock down the case to detemine FL adjustment.

    Guessing it is quicker than the above?

    Yes I have one and find it great for sorting cases and checking case length before trimming. My rifle chamber is now head spaced at min Saami spec so proper case fit occurs where the shellholder bottoms out on the die body

    Thanks for that. Maybe I should invest in some.

    They are well made and easy to use. Setting up your die seems straightforward. Just measure a fired case and record the length then resize the case gradually, screwing the die body into the press before re measuring until the length is 0.002 less than the fired case.
