Default neal jones rim thickness gage

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqM-SHZlZjM

Has anyone used one of the above rim thickness gages?

Has anyone accurized their ammo using one?? How did it work out for you?

I am new to the rimfire addiction, but I think I like shooting 22lr as its cheap, it doesn't give you a headache, and its also quiet!!

I bought a MKII Savage from OOPS a few weeks back. He offered me some wolf ammo...750 rounds for $40.00...which I passed on as I thought wolf was problematic, as it was in my AR's.

Well as you all know, its great stuff and I tested four different types of ammo at Burro, and sure enough, the wolf was the most consistant, and it also provided the tighest groups, least fliers (none). It sure is oily however.

To try to make some sows ears into silk I was looking at one of these Neal Jones Rim Thcikness gages. I have read some reviews and people say they work.

You can make a rim thickness gauge from a fired 223 case and a dial indicator.

I made a rim thickness gauge that works fast and accurate. See it here:

Then tested it for efficacy, and generated a long discussion here:

readers digest version, it didn't make any appreciable difference in group sizes for me....ymmv, but this is about the best I can do at 50 yds

I forgot to mention that I too was using a "V" series Savage MK II.
