IMO, the guage is not as important as the method used to measure. you need to make sure you are doing the same techinique each and every time to get good results. i place mine in a vise or some type of holder to do the measurements. i do at least 10 pulls then average them. human error is your biggest problem that i see when using one.

I have the RCBS but I've had it for years and if I was buying one today I would spring for one of the digital gauges.

Gun confiscation will not happen in my lifetime.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." C.S. Lewis
