Hornady OAL Curved Gauge
Hornady OAL Curved Gauge .For all autoloader, lever-action, or pump-action rifles. Also fits all bolt-action and single-shot firearms. Inserts into chamber through ejection port.
One of the best kept secrets in accurate reloading is precise bullet seating depth. Regulating seating depth and the
resulting “jump” to
the rifling is widely regarded as fundamental to improved accuracy. A few thousandths of an inch change between the bullet and the rifling can make the difference between so-so accuracy and real tack-driver performance. The Lock-N-Load® O.A.L Gauge is
universally acclaimed as the most accurate, easy-to-use and reliable method of obtaining that critical relationship.
To use the Lock-N-Load® O.A.L Gauge, you will need a Modified Case (sold separately) to fit your firearm’s chamber and thread it onto the gauge. Hornady® offers interchangeable modified cases in most common sizes from .17 Remington up to and including 500 Nitro. These specially prepared modified cases are
threaded at the case-head and have a .002″ oversized neck to accept
the same bullets you intend to load.
This is critical, as the Lock-N-Load® O.A.L Gauge dimensions obtained
will be accurate to .001″ These results cannot be attained with competitive products,
which use a simulated bullet with an arbitrary shape.
Not compatible with Adapter “D” or short-bodied cases.
