I hope you are reading Base to Ogive. Tip to base can give you erratic reading from cartridge to cartridge, Ogive can vary from bullet to bullet

Did you start drinking before 1030 in the morning?

You can't subtract 2 from 15?

Sounds like someone needs to hang up their dies and let FJG start loading for them.

WOW Buzz…are you alright?

It's correct in the drawing

Decimal point begins the count, regardless of what side you are on.

You guys are right. I learned on vernier calipers where you had to add up the columns. I Carried these thoughts over to digital. I have both vernier and digital caliper and mikes and love the digitals. Just a play of word on what the column meanings. Thanks for the correction.

Still have grandad's Helios brand.

Once I got a Starrett American dial caliper, I haven't used then since.

Even bought a second Starrett for the lathe.

Even easier yet, 2 from 5.

Buzz, go to the store and get 5 apples and call me back.

Yes but apparently one is stuck in his nose which renders the other 4 useless.

Buzz watch this video there are a couple tips that will keep the math simpler.

Basically measure a couple cases pick an average then zero your caliper and once you size case correctly your caliper will read .002 or whatever number you are shooting for. It was a “duh” moment for me after seeing it done that way the first time.

Try it, you'll like it. One of the best tools I ever bought and one of my favorites to use.

I used them for a long time.

Like I said, once I got a dial caliper I was done with them.

I misread your comment. I was referring to use the Starrett dial caliper. Sounds like we are on the same page. 👍
