Bump gauges

#1 Post by Alpha1 »

Hi, I have one of your bump gauges for 6.5x55 Swedish and a cartridge overall length gauge also in 6.5x55.
Can I use these with my 6.5 Creedmore or do you recommend ordering a new caliber-specific set?
I will be bumping the shoulders using competition shell holders and a body die.

A friend of mine spent Sunday Shooting his at a mile.

I guess I will just try them and see if they work.

Sorry, I missed your original post. Yes it will fit and give meaningful results however not from the correct datum point. The good news is a CM upper can simply be added to the existing base and you are ready to go.
