Easy check if you reload and youre worried about head space 1)seat a bullet in brass 2)insert into chamber 3)allow the bolt to come home GENTLY 4)press your forward assist 5)rack bolt to the rear catching the bullet. 6)Measure. Instant head space gauge. Also seat the bullet .02 deeper when reloading to tune your loads to your firearms chamber. Just remember to give me some credit when you repost this on another thread!

Good advice. I do reload but my brother needed a place to stay so he sleeps and stores his stuff in my reloading room. Makes it difficult to do much in there but I'll try what you said.

I'll pass on the word and take the credit for myself . No, I got your back. Thanks for the tip.
