    May I put in my 2 cents worth???? I really am glad that I got a electric case trimmer. After 3 or 4 loads now I just run my cases thru my trimmer before loading to takecare of any stretch that might have occured.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I already had the Zediker book on the list. I am looking at the RCBS Case master gaging tool or the forester CO-AX case and cartridge inspector. Anyone have either one or other suggestions to measure neck thickness and bullet run out.

    I use the following 2 for neck thickness and Concentricity They both work very well.

    Hi,

    I originally bought the Forster concentricity guage. It worked OK, but............ I then borrowed a RCBS Case Master from a friend. It does so much more for not a lot more money that I bought my own about a month later, and never looked back, as the saying goes. It's also easier to use.

    Also, another book you might be interested in "Precision Shooting Reloading Guide".

    HTH.

    Re: Must haves for the longrange shooters reloading bench?

    One very important limiting factor with the Forster concentricity guage is if you are shooting very long cases they will not fit. pay particular attention to the maximum length case that will fit in the v blocks. I chose the RCBS Case master for that reason.

    Hope that helps, But then again it is your Dollars.

    Re: Must haves for the longrange shooters reloading bench?

    I picked up the RCBS Trim Mate Case prep center and it has saved me a bunch of time, but I think the chargemaster has saved even more time. The only thing that I have to watch for with the Chargemaster is a too heavy charge by .1g to .3g. I only have that problem with a few powders, and I believe it's the way that the powder trickles out at the end of the weighing cycle. Some powders clump a bit I believe.
