Product Description

One of the best kept secrets in accurate reloading is precise bullet seating depth. Regulating seating depth and the resulting "jump" to the rifling is widely regarded as fundamental to improved accuracy. A few thousandths of an inch change between the bullet and the rifling can make the difference between just so-so accuracy and real tack-driver performance. The Lock N Load Gauge is universally acclaimed as the most accurate, easy-to-use and reliable method of obtaining that critical relationship. Hornady's curved Overall Length Gauge is for autoloaders, lever action and pump action rifles. Uses Hornady's modified cases sold separately)

Easy to use on AR. June 23 2012

I bought this curved one and the straight one for bolt guns. The curved one works great on the AR rifle and I would imagine on an AK. It's actually easier to feel than with the straight one on a bolt gun. Hornady stuff seems too pricey to me and that why I took off a star.
Great for increasing your accuracy from almost any rifle Jan. 19 2015

When accuracy is your goal then you really need the overall length gauge. I shoot a Springfield M1A Super Match and although this rifle is capable of amazing groups with the use of this tool and using the information that I gathered by checking this rifle I was able to see my groups shrink by over 1/4"at 100 yards I now see three round groups that are touching one another and at 500 yards by over 2" by properly sizing my rounds to the rifle. This may not sound like much but in a competition it can mean quite a few more X ring shots. In hunting it can mean the difference in a wounded animal and a clean one shot kill. I highly recommend using the Hornady Lock N Load Overall Length Gauge if you reload. By the way I now use this tool with my hunting rifles and have seen my groups decrease in size with these weapons too.
Definitely recommend for more accurate reloading and accuracy! Jan. 3 2015

This overall length gauge is great for finding the exact bullet seating depth you need to set for your specific rifle so that the bullet is as close to the lands/grooves as you can get without actually touching them to improve the accuracy of your reloading and shooting. It takes the guess work and manually testing of each round in the chamber multiple times in the hopes of getting it more exact. This tool will allow you to get an exact reading to the lands in conjunction with the modified cases so that you can subtract off a couple hundredths of an inch off that measurement for proper seating of your bullet. Would definitely recommend this in conjunction with the Hornady modified cases for more accurate reloading.

Its a good gauge but had to oil it to make the internals a little smoother. The picture is deceptive because i was going to order the straight gauge but saw the picture and thought this was a two pack. However, only the bent gauge is included. The picture should be changed so this doesn't happen to others as well.

Used it once and while using it dropped from the bench. The threaded end bent a little from the fall and while trying to straighten the threads broke off. My fault but I will not replace for the cost.
