Comment on the Tech Notes article:

Reloading On The Cheap...

A special thank you to MikeG for putting together this Tech Note for a simple, yet innovative handloading tool.... like a certain well-known precision reloading tool maker markets for big-bucks! A great idea, and well presented Mike! Well done, and many thanks.

God Bless,

A very informative article. However I do believe there is a mistake in the figures for the 257 Roberts. The neck is listed as .290 and the top of the soulder is listed as .429. 1/2 between the two figures would be .359 = 23/64. this could confuse someone reading the article.

The reference to the .257 Roberts at the end of the article is for making a bullet-seating gage on the same design - hence the .250" hole, which would touch the bullet at about the same diameter at the tops of the lands.

Could be clearer, though. Thanks for pointing that out.

Yes. If you look at some of the bullet comparator tools (Sinclair comes to mind) I think that is exactly what they do. Drill a different sized hole through each face.

But I like to make separate gages and then just leave them in the box with the dies. Purely for convenience.... don't have to try to remember where I last left it ;)
