Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    have you tried rezeroing the caliper after taking the battery out and then replacing it again? The head is working fine as it reads OK up to about 3.8". They either work or don't work. It almost acts like you have a grid line malfunction, or the zero point is to close to the other grid line. That being the case they'll have to adjust it, by simply moving it in one direction or the other (don't try this at home). Kind of a rare thing for a digital caliper! It could also be that somehow the reader head has become cocked a little bit. When this happens the error will stack up between the grid lines to the point that it jumps a grid.

    Typical electronics. I keep my analong calipers. They never take a poop.

    Sounds to me like encoder issues. I'm sure they will replace it.

    Mitutoyo take care of you? Always like to hear how manufacturers take care of issues (or do not). A forum like this helps to multiply the cause/effect of their service (or lack thereof).

    Let us know
