I've used the Sinclair for the past 12 plus years. An excellent piece of precision equipment & I've found Sincair repair or replacement policy on there items to be exceptional.

I use the Sinclair and like it. I have never use the Hornady. What I like about Sinclair products, if you have a question there is someone available to answer your questions.

I know it cost more but what do you all think of the NECO gage?

Still using the cheap one...RCBS CaseMaster.
I feel as long as the dial indicator is correct, any gauge is better then no gauge. Just wish the gauge had a way of correcting the run-out on the unit.


Tip:
When I seat the projectile, I use quarter turns and run the projectile back into the die(four step process). Noticed this reduces the run-out on most loaded rounds to right around 0.0003" to 0.0004"! Good enough for what I can get out of my rifles....

I have both the Sinclair and NECO gages, and there are some differences. Both run straight concentricity checks on cases and loaded ammo, but the NECO will also sort out cases for wall concentricity using a chord anvil. Used it a few times (the chord anvil feature), haven't found it to be that useful for most of my shooting, but to each his own. I'd recommend the Sinclair. It's less expensive, and IMHO, a better value for your money.

I would buy neither one! Sinclair sells the Neco gauge, and this is the best I've seen commercially. You also need a good dial indicator (wand type of course). At least buy a Gem (brand name) in .001" readings. I use an Interrapid, but they're pretty expensive (.0005"). The Brown & Sharpe Best Test is also pretty good too. You really don't need a .0001" indicator for a case gauge, and avoid the more common gear & rack ones due to error built in them.
