Re: Concentricity guage
I suppose based on personal experience, rather than personal opinion? In my experience, concentricity gages do indeed help a knowledgeable handloader make better ammo but it's not automatic. All the gage can do is tell us what amount of runout we have, what we do with that info is up to us.
My experience is that Sinclair's gage, even with the less expensive dial indicator, is one of the best. The NECO is perhaps THE best, overall, but it's too costly for a lot of us AND it checks more things than many of us care about. My brief experience with the RCBS tool (Case Master?) left me unsatisfied for consistancy and smoothness of operation. (Perhaps I wasn't using it correctly?)
My OPINION is I want to learn where runout comes into my reloading so I can correct it at the source. I have no personal use for any devices such as the Hornady that promises to bend a crooked round straight.
