    44-40 case Gauge

    Hi all,
    As per the tile does anybody have a 44-40 case gauge they are willing to part with ?
    There are non available in NZ (that I can find) and the cost + postage from America is prohibitive.
    Regards
    Mike

    a set of calipers will sort out and measuring needed.........and it would be childs play to make up an alloy ruler with correct lengths taken out..... or even easier plastic ruler .... or does this do something other than take measurements???

    Depends on whether a case length gauge or a headspace gauge is required. I have case length gauges in aluminum and ply wood but end up using verniers mostly.

    What I'm looking for is the gauge to ensure the completed round is the correct size to fit in the chamber of the firearm not the OAL.
