    i will be ordering my next batch of reloading stuff in the next couple days and i was thinking about ordering these dial calpiers http://www.midwayusa.com/rewriteaproduct/119623 does anyone have these and what do you think about them? the reviews on the site all seem to be good and the price is nice also. i would be able to measure both case length and loaded bullet length with these correct?

    thanks alot,
    kevin

    Looks likea good set. I've been looking at calipers and most of the ones I've found like that are $30+. I'll have to get me a set of them. I think my old boss at the machine shop I worked at had a pair just like them except they were in a case.

    I think I payed $20.00 for mine - looks about the same and you are correct they are much better'n a ruler:D :D I like bieng able to lock the movement - so you don't lose your measurement when going from case to case to case to case to case..........

    Actually, once you begin to rely on the caliper, you will find many uses for it and be quite lost without it. I would still advise you to think about getting a 1" micrometer to go with it. The wider anvil of the mic will speed up measuring certain things, and if you rely on the friction thimble (better for case and gun part measurement in some respects) or ratchet, your readings will be very uniform.

    I bought the same Frankfort Arsenal Calipers from Midway 2+ Years ago, and they have been great!
