Actually, it is a terrible idea to use cartridges to measure headspace. Best case scenario it gives you meaningless info, worst case scenario it gives you dangerous info.
Gauges are precision ground for a reason, guessing, or approximating headspace measurement is a recipe for disaster.
OP, if you are ever in the Woodland area, you are more than welcome to swing by and we will measure properly with gauges.
