Have a look at this tool from Innovative Technologies. Looks like it would be a very useful addition to any reloading bench.

Digital Headspace Gauge

Hey Vince

Well I've got a question right away. You adjust the screws in to hit the case on the datum point



So if you move it to measure some other case, say going from 22-250 case to 338 RUM, then how do you return to the exact same place on the 22-250 case head next time? You won't be able to duplicate the exact same placement of the screws again.

I use the Hornady with the bushing and they bushing is not going to change in size and I write it down and keep the measurement on my spreadsheet so I don't have to actually set the rifle up and check for the amount of crush fit. I can size the case using the previous measurement.

Also, it will not check the headspace until you fire form the case, just like the Hornady.

Gidday Woods, how are you mate.

I've never actually seen or used this gauge mate, so I can't answer your question. What I will say though is that this company has a pretty good reputation and I can't imagine that they would produce a tool that would not do as they claim. Although, I suppose anything is possible.

When I received the email showing this tool I thought that it would be of interest to other Nutters.

Cheers, Vince

I have a RCBS case gauge and what I did was turn a template for each of the calibers I reload and use them to set the gauge up before use. I would imagine this would work for this item also.

I always thought that my "headspace" is two boxes of tissues..
I found out when I got the flu last year.. Yuck if you could see what came out..
