From what I can see, I would guess in the middle of making 300 blackout.

Not sure. But it kind of looks like a strange head space gauge. How did you get this piece of brass/device?

Maybe it's a no go attempt at making a no-go gauge.

Interesting, could be a go attempt or a way to measure headspace as well.

Looks to me like it could be used for headspace measurement.

I have no clue what it is. A friend of mine bought a house, and the previous owner left a ton of reloading stuff in the garage. She knows that I reload, so she gave it all to me. smile So, mixed in with the spent brass, I found about 50 of these. Headstamped 5.56. Most of the inserts are aluminum, but some are white plastic. I thought headspace guage, but I noticed that a lot of them have spent primers, and what looks like powder residue. BTW, they are way to long to chamber in a 5.56.

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

It's a head space gauge. They are long and when you chamber them they will push back into the case so you can see what your trim length needs to be for the particular chamber your rifle has (not all are the same).

I said headspace but thinking chamber length. Now that you question and I look again I see the shoulder, it's head space not chamber length.

Thanks for keeping me straight RR.
