The thread on the case length gauge is split and spread so that the gauge is a tight fit in the cutter. If the gauge is not a tight fit, it might back out of the cutter without the operator knowing it, affecting the length to which the case would be ...
The case trimmer should trim the case somewhere between the max. and min. allowable case length for the cartridge in question. Our case length gauges have a tolerance of +.000 and -.015. Handgun cartridges that headspace on the case mouth have a tole...
Custom case length gauges can be made for cartridges that fit an existing shell holder. We will need to know the desired trim length, and either the bullet diameter or a couple sized sample cases. The cost for this service is listed on our website be...
We do not have a 204 Ruger case length gauge available. The case mouth diameter is too small for our Cutter to trim. Our Cutter can only trim cases that have a minimum case mouth diameter of .220" as our cutter has a .220 diameter hole in the cent...

Screw the case length gauge (the part with the pin that goes through the case) all the way into the cutter. There should also have been a shell holder with threads on the inside, that screws onto the lock stud. This locks the case into the shell hold...
Sometimes the shell holder or lock stud has a burr somewhere that prevents the shell holder from pulling tight. Try turning the shell holder on tight without a case in it. The stud has to pass through the hole in the shell holder to contact the ca...
Bottleneck rifle cases usually always work correctly as the sizing dies include an expander to open neck to proper diameter as part of the sizing operation. With handgun cartridges, case neck wall thickness makes the difference. Sizing the case...
The case should square up when you tighten the shell holder and pull the case rim against the lock stud. If it wobbles, look for a burr on the flat surface of the lock stud, inside the shell holder groove, or on the case rim. Some case wobble i...
If you are having trouble getting the gauge into the cutter, take a hand drill and lock the Gauge into the chuck - be sure to wrap the Gauge in a shop rag to prevent the drill from damaging the Gauge. Now screw the Cutter on. You can use a pliers on ...

In 2009 we changed the design of our case length gauges to the one piece configuration we currently manufacture. We were concerned about premature wear of the tip of the gauge, so before changing over we set up a test fixture on a CNC mill that repea...
The case length gauge just needs to be polished down a little in diameter, so the gauge slides into the case. If you return the gauge to the factory with a sample case (one that gave the trouble), we can polish the mandrel down at no charge. One can ...
Cases that have been resized have had the neck reduced in diameter by forcing it into the die, and then by pulling the case out of the die, the expander has opened the case mouth to a size usually .001" smaller than your bullet diameter. With Pisto...
