The easy-to-use and versatile Datum Dial system is a groundbreaking tool designed to gather the data you need to refine case sizing and bullet seating operations. Core components include a body and three dials that reliably measure relative distances between selected points on cases, bullets, and cartridges. Your payoff? Precise information that helps you increase accuracy, improve safety, maximize consistency, and boost your reloading capability.Read More...
Provides the data you need to refine your handloading:
Using the average relative measurement taken from several cases that have been fire-formed from the same firearm, you can then adjust your sizing die to produce cartridges with a headspace tailored to your firearm’s chamber.
X = relative measurement between the base of a case to a datum point on its shoulder angle.
You can also adjust your seater die to achieve the optimum distance from the bullet ogive to the lands of the rifle. Obtaining the best bullet seating depth for a specific bullet used in a specific firearm significantly improves the accuracy of your loaded rounds.
X = relative measurement from the base of a bullet/cartridge to a point on the bullet’s ogive, very close to the bullet’s major diameter.
