    Is there a cartridge (not case) gauge made to minimum chamber specs for .223, .308 Win, or .30-06?

    A gauge that would act as a go / no-go gauge for checking completed cartridges that would indicate:

    *Excessive Headspace dimension
    *Excessive Case length dimension
    *Excessive Neck thickness / diameter at case neck
    *Excessive Case body diameter
    *Excessive Overall length / safe ogive location

    ???

    If so, who makes it?

    Thanks!

    The only part they can't check is OAL & SAAMI minimum dia.
    If they checked that, most rounds would not fit in them anyway..

    They can check for SAAMI MAX OAL, but that is not to say every barrel with have MAX chamber leade in there.

    The only way to check that is using your own barrel.
