Looking for a concentricity gauge

Hey Folks,
Iím looking to buy a concentricity gauge to add to the loading bench. Iím not a match shooter so Iím not dealing with tight fitting chambers and turned necks. I do however load to the best possible accuracy I can get from my guns and spend quite a bit of time at the range working on load development. I may start turning necks to at least even the thickness of the necks making checking for concentricity possible after seating bullets. Iíve seen several advertised that do many jobs from measuring wall thickness to checking necks after seating bullets. Iím wondering if thereís an all around gage that either does it all or is the best compromise of whatís practical for what I will use it for. Thanks for any input you guys may have.
Phil in Anchorage!

I have a sinclair concentricity guage,and it works really well.If you want a guage that will do more than just check for runout,look at the Neco guage,I know Sinclair's use to sell them.

For the money, you can't beat the Sinclair with the low priced dial indicator. If you want a top tool, NECO is it but it's pricey.

The RCBS kit is .... well,... ok, I guess, certainly better than nothing, but a bit rough in its functions.

Thanks for the replies guys. I canít seem to get a price on the Neco tool, and when I call the number it goes to voice mail. Can you tell me what pricey is?

Personally I have the Sinclair gauge. This one:
Welcome to Sinclair International's Online Store

The one with the gauge. It works O.K., but I need to be careful when rotating it to make sure that the cartridge doesn't "climb" up the ball bearings that it's resting on.

I use the RCBS, and also use the other features such as neck thickness and check for thinout near the base. I dont know what functions roughly, but maybe my eyes have not been opened to those.
