Bullet Comparator for sorting bullets?

So I'm looking for the tool which I can use to sort my bullets, I have 3 calibers which I regularly reload they are .224, .277 and .308, and it looks like there are 4 or maybe 5 choices, the hex tool from Sinclair, hex tool from PTG, then Sinclair Bullet Sorting Stand with Dial Indicator, Sinclair Comparator which attaches to the caliper and Hornady LNL Comparator which was originally made by Stony Point. So I need to choose one and I'm leaning towards Hornady LNL Comparator.

Do you think I'm on the right track? Maybe there is something I should know before I buy one?

Thanx!

    The hex tool is junk, don't wast your money. The Hornady LNL is good. I use the Davidson base with multiple nosepieces sold by Sinclair. They attach to the caliper. I have the Hornady, but never use it anymore.

    Get the John Buhay tool. It is the best that there is.

    Bearing Surface Comparators


    Bought mine from the inventor but you can buy them from Tubbs.

    Wow, John Buhay tool is something, but I think Hornady LNL Comparator will do just fine, for a bearing surface measurement combination of 2 LNL Comparators can take an adequate measurement, and if I see their result as insufficient I will defiantly try to acquire on of those John Buhay stands.

    Thank you all!!!

    Got myself Hornady LNL Comparator, it is tough to get adequate reading from it, it is always +- 0.004"... I'm returning it back for refund, I guess my next step is SINCLAIR INTERNATIONAL : Sinclair Comparator/Bump Gage Body (09-1000 ) -
    any thoughts on that?
    Thanx...
