Redding Case Neck Gauge on Sale at Midsouth
The Redding Case Neck Gauge is one of the better tools on the market for measuring neck-wall thickness. It works quickly and is both repeatable and accurate. When turned and unturned necks were checked first on the Redding tool and then double-checked with a Starrett ball mic, the results were the same–but of course the task can be completed much faster with the Redding gauge or similar tool.
Neck-wall thickness gauges are not just for folks who turn necks. For best accuracy, you want cases that have the same neck-wall thickness so you maintain consistent neck tension case to case. Likewise you want to eliminate cases with necks that are much thicker on one side than another. Even if you shoot “no-turn” necks, this tool lets you efficiently sort cases by neck-wall thickness and uniformity. That can dramatically improve accuracy.
The Redding Case-Neck Gauge comes complete with a .001″ Dial Indicator and two pilots (.22 and .30 caliber). With a MSRP of $96.00, this unit typically sells for $78 to $84.00. Right now, Midsouth Shooter’s Supply has the Redding Case-Neck Guage, item 076-26400, on sale for just $56.88, including two mandrels and both .22 and .30 caliber pilots. If you shoot a 6mm, 6.5mm, or 7mm, you’ll need to purchase a separate pilot for $4.09. CLICK HERE for a web brochure with more details.
