    It's a NO-GO gage. If the shell won't go into the hole in the gage, it needs to be resized. That is the brass or metal part of the shell.

    If you have the time to run each shell through the gauge, then you have the time to resize them in a Mec collet resizer. I guess it could serve a purpose if you were installing a new collet and you did not own a Mic so to set your collet resizer.

    Hello

    If the re-loads are shot in the same break open firearm some shooters will say
    " The sizing is not as critical as sizing for an semi - auto "

    hwy13, if shells shot in semi autos or pumps are reloaded and go back into the same gun, no re-sizing needed then either.

    All that is true... Right up to the moment you get a new gun and now your shells won't fit in it.

    To each his own. The brass lasts way longer then the plastic so why not resize them as you de-prime them and elimanate any potential headaches.Jeff
