    If it's a sportier, it might not be a .30-06. For example, MANY of these were converted to .300 Win Mag by Century.

    Good point, I kind of swept past that part. It works out the same.

    when checking headspace on a 17 or 14..
    remove the cocking assembly, remove the extractor, install the Gauge, even if it closes on the tool, but you can feel it resist..it passed...if it flops down easy, then try a field reject...if it fails that tool, then its time to replace.
