concentricity tool advice

I haven't found a product review for a concentricity tool so Im asking the reloaders and precision shooooters.
Have you used a run out or concentricity gauge and if you did does it adjust the bullet for a loaded round.
Im looking at hornadys runout correcter..concentricity tool....saw a review that said it was off by.006 ...so basicly worthless...the others say the sinclair tool works great but doesn't correct a loaded round.
Im looking for advice and opinions from people who actually use them.
Which one WOULD YOU BUY if you were going to buy one to correct a round and why.?
hard to imagine hornady making a precision tool that isn't precision.

    I am using the Hornady, I pulled it off a prize table. The biggest weakness in my opinion is the way the case head sits in a conical cutout; if there are any imperfections in the case head your readings will be whacky. Otherwise it seems to work pretty well. Indeed it will correct a loaded round.

    Accuracy 1 makes a great tool. I shoot F class(1000yds) and run out is critical. If you are looking for a tool to correct loaded rds, you are on the wrong track. If your rnds are that far out you have other problems, ie bas size die, bad seating die , inconsistent neck thickness just to name a few. A tool to correct bad rds is just a band aide on a for another problem. Go to some web sites like 6mm BR and shooters forum for some good advice and equip reviews. JVON

    Yes, the case head must be set in properly or you will get wacky readings! For that reason I'm looking for a different set up. Looking at Sinclair. Wish I had the extra money for the Accuracy One model.

    I've been using both the Hornady and the Sinclair. Sinclair you need to pay attention and keep the brass tight to the rollers, easy with larger cases takes attention with smaller ones. I have an extra Hornady tool with the extra bullet guides would be happy to sell if you'd like a slightly used one. Rick
