Concentricity King: L.E. Wilson Chamber-Type Micrometer Bullet Seater

A wobbling football doesn’t fly very straight. In the same way, a wobbling bullet will not group well at range.

Essential Gear: Using the L.E. Wilson Pistol Case Gage

I recently wrote about the importance of using a rifle case gage when loading rifle ammunition. Well, it’s equally as important to use a case gage when loading pistol ammunition, so that’s what I’ll cover in this post!
