I use the Sinclair hex-shaped comparator, for use with dial calipers.  Inexpensive, adapts to multiple calibers, and works well...

Keep in mind, Sinclair offers 2 different models of this comparator, each with a different combination of caliber choices, depending on what you load for.

Thanks,

 

I've seen that before, but forgot about it.  I just got the new Hornady catalog and they evidently bought out Stoney Point and their Case Gage line.  They have their own comparators and I was mulling over the complete set, with the interchangeable inserts for like 12 common calibers.  It's about $60 for the Deluxe set and like $40 for the abbreviated set. 

 

The nice thing about these comparators, is that you can also use the oversize holes to check the shoulder datum head spacing point to a degree, on smaller rifle cases, say using a 45 cal insert on a 308 case, etc.  You can then make sure that your shoulders are uniform. 

 

Anyhow, for a third of the H. Deluxe kit, that Sinclar is pretty nice.  They also make a very nice primer pocket uniformer that I need to get too.

 

Later, Chris
