Larry what is the end result difference in using yours and using one by Sinclair, Hornady or Harrels? Using one along with a digital caliper it seems be the same exact principle.
There definitely are other good tools out there. However, the patented "adjustable v-block" on our gauge requires no special bushings when measuring different calibers, and it provides uniform spring pressure for getting the most consistent measurements. The Digital Headspace Gauge also replaces different types of handloading tools, and it automatically rounds off to the nearest half a thousandth of an inch.
I agree . I don't know what some others are refering too. The Rediing body die is designed to bump the shoulder . If it can't then something is not matched right . God this auto save is a nuisance .

Redding bushings will not work in it as they are too short, but Forster bushings will work in Redding S dies, or at least they work in mine.........
John, in reference to the "auto save" - what are you talkin' about? Is it something I can help fix?

Yes that is ok , you can post it in the Wiki . The trouble is that when I write like now every time it auto saves it moves the text down in the widow so then when I scroll it back up it moves again as soon as I place the cursor to start typing again . It makes typing anything a real chore.

It bumps the shoulders on everything I use one for and I have some short chambered rifles. Crush fit on virgin brass type of short.
Without a doubt I just buy a Redding S series FL sizer and do it all in one shot now. Easier,faster. I FL size everything these days.
As for the shoulder bump necksizers. A little stoning on the shellholder converts any necksizer into a shoulder bump NS.
That's the way I do it too. All in one pass, with one die, and ... with the option of using different bushings. And with one die, it's also less expensive.
