Headspace 303 Brit = 30-40 Krag

Post by Hammerdown »

I'm trying to remember, is the field gauge the same for 303 British and 30-40 Krag? I'm using a disk gauge to check an 1898 Springfield.

But, head space gauge specifically for the 7.62 Russian will NOT work in the Krag or the British, base is to fat, won't sit down in the chamber !..........
