Re: Hornady microjust

I have 3 or 4 of them, they do not include a lock mechanism of any kind and that is a bother because they move freely. Once I find my setting I use a piece of masking tape to ensure it doesn't move. I don't know what the increments relate to but I don't use them. I make dummy rounds for each bullet I use and set the seating depth to the master as defined by the dummy.

Re: Hornady microjust

The increcments on any "micrometer" seating head is only relative to another length. It has NO application to anything else, nor does it need to be.

Re: Hornady microjust

I use mine in conjunction with the LNL bullet comparator and they seem to relate pretty close to .001". Not exact but pretty close.
