A user supplied caliper is required. The Datum Dial provides a relative measurement between the base of a case to a datum point on its shoulder angle. It may be used before sizing operations to find the optimal headspace for your firearm. After sizing operations, use the Datum Dial to check the setup and consistency of your reloading process.
- Better accuracy because your ammunition’s headspace is tailored to your firearms’ chamber
- Safer shooting because excessive headspace, which may lead to dangerous case separation, can be avoided
- Quick sorting of batches of cases, bullets and cartridges to effectively remove variation to provide relative consistency
