    I bought the RCBS and it does a fair job, but a friend has the Sinclair and I really like that one. If I could do it over, the Sinclair.

    I just gotta be different Andrew :)
    I just bought the Necco concentricity gauge. Expensive but awesome and from what i could tell easier to use than the sinclair. I also liked the look of Hollands. Good price and simple and foolproof. Still got the Necco though in the end :D

    My 7wsm rifles are all but finished gun)
    Hows the Edge going??

    Cant wait to get out and test em out....

    Sinclair is the best IMO, but dents under he shoulder in your cases can be a pain and give false runout readings. Dents don't read as easy in the RCBS because the cases rides on a v block, and not ball bearings. Returned my RCBS for th sinclair though. I also upped my dial gauge to a 10 thousandths gauge so I dont have to burn my eyeballs out trying to tell the difference between 1 or 2 thou runout. The runout gauge is generally only as good as the dial indicator.

    Nielson bros 22LR concentricity gauge is awesome, and they are developing a centerfire version this year. Cant wait to see it.

    Happy with my choice :)
    Like I said on the phone the only thing that really made the neco exsy is the postage @$45 us :rolleyes:. Oh well very happy with my results so far so must be worth it :). Suppose time will tell if it improves my reloading...

    Any pair of V blocks and a run out gauge with a stand. You can buy those at any machinist supply shop or online. The Sinclair version is ok, but I prefer the tried and true machinist's set up.

    Don't forget to add in a small surface plate as a base for these pieces.
