BW what is the Rockwell hardness of a gauge? the barrel steel?

closing a bolt on a standard gauge with "heavy drag" is not going to do the shoulder of your chamber anything good.

Your giving ****** advice! but hey if it works in the world you live in go for it!

Re: Setting Headspace for 260 Rem. AI

Guys I appreciate the info. I am looking for an actual 260 AI Go Gauge to use. They are around, just backordered at the moment. In the event I dont find one soon, I will use the brass crush fit method recommended.
