I just don't have a firm opinion on the difference yet.But Im still digging

    The very first video shows that there are two head space gauges, but when the originator of the video used both gauges, reamed and set two chambers, one with each gauge he could then swap gauges and have the same head space.

    Bottom line if you stick a loaded round in your chamber it would not hurt to check the head space before pulling the trigger, AI, factory or Wildcat. I take a head space gauge with me to buy a factory rifle and it's served me well, some of the factory rifle are head spaced horribly!!!!

    14 pages of debates about a subject that isn't debatable. This is real simple. All you have to do is look at the reamer specs. Are they different or are they the same. That's one of the good things about numbers.

    Here's a one-liner, if there are 2 different go gauges, then how can they have the same headspace?

    Because one go-gauge is 0.014" longer so they both zero-out in their own respective chambers... That's how you can have 2 different go-gauges.

    Here's a mind-blower...There's 2 different reamers, die sets, and you're not gonna believe this.....Even 2 different No-Go Gauges, too!
