    Does anyone use the Stoney point gages to check bullet seating depth. Does anyone use them to setup the resizing dies? I am interested if these steps are necessary or not worth it unless you are a benchrest shooter? I am trying to make my reloads as accurate as possible.

    I like the stoney point gage to find the lands... it works well for that... but to set my resizing dies i really like a RCBS precision mic, does a real nice job.... then i weigh and sort all brass when working up a good round... for 308 a use about 3 grains spread on the wieght of the brass.... it takes time but very worth well as you can alway improve on the accuracy and have a lot of fun in the process.... I am not nearly as fussy when chasing white tails as most shots are less than 100 yards.

    I use the Stoney Point (now Hornady) O.A.L. Gauge to set up my seating die, and the RCBS Precision Mic to set up my resizing die.

    I use the Stoney Point gauge to find the length to the lands like dirtman and set my seating die accordingly.
