Hornady Lock-N-Load Bullet Comparator Basic Set with 7 Inserts
Our Bullet Comparator easily attaches to the blade of your calipre and uses interchangeable inserts (available in sizes from .17 caliber to .45 caliber) to measure from the bullet ogive.
Measuring cartridge lengths across the bullet tips is not a reliable (or repeatable) method for measuring loaded rounds. Its common for variations of up to .025" to exist from one round to the next. Our Bullet Comparator measures rounds from the ogive to provide consistent, precise measurements. You can also use it to check uniformity of bullets from base to ogive.
Our Bullet Comparator easily attaches to the blade of your caliper and uses interchangeable inserts (available in sizes from .17 caliber to .45 caliber) to measure from the bullet ogive.
Used in conjunction with the O.A.L. Gauge, the Bullet Comparator provides the ultimate in precision measurement. The Bullet Comparator will properly align the O.A.L. Gauge for precise measurement using a caliper. This method allows direct comparison of your loads as you set up your bullet seating die for any selected bullet free-travel (jump).

Use with caution.By: David on 20 October 2020The construction is fairly light weight and will be easily damaged. Combined with the length gauge, the larger calibers, 6.5 and above the readings are fairly consistent, however the smaller calibers give random readings no matter how carefully consistent I try to be.
