The Hornady Lock-N-Load Bullet Comparator body attaches to the blade of your caliper with a small thumbscrew and utilizes inserts for each calibre. The design of this tool allows proper alignment when used with the Hornady OAL gauge (offset position), or it can be used in a conventional centerline method. Inserts are sold separately. The body can also be used to hold the Hornady headspace gauge inserts.
Bullet Comparator Inserts are designed for use with the Lock-N-Load® Bullet Comparator; it eliminates variables when measuring the over-all length of a bullet. Bullet length can vary a few thousandths due to material variation and tip finish.
The Lock-N-Load® Bullet Comparator Inserts allow the reloader to measure the bullet from the base to a specific point on the ogive, which has little variation, if any. This versatile system also provides the reloader with a much more consistent way to monitor the overall length of their reloads, allowing the reloader to build more precision into their handloads, that translates into better groups at the range and more meat in the freezer.

A Comparator is an excellent tool to use to sort bullets by base to ogive length. This is a valuable step if you are considering trimming the bullet meplat.
The inserts are stainless steel and machined with a taper and a short straight section to more accurately duplicate the chamber throat. This eliminates the wobble experienced with many comparators which have standard drilled holes. This design allows you to quickly and accurately measure the bullet's bearing surface of the bullet.

Sinclair have been making these hex style bullet comparators for over 20 years, and believe they make the most accurate tools available. The holes in the Sinclair Bullet Comparators are cut with throating reamers to accurately duplicate the actual throat of a rifle. The comparator is used with calipers, and allows the reloader to accurately measure the length from the major diameter of the bullet to the case head. It also enables you to make accurate seating depth changes to your bullet seater. The Sinclair Comparator does not attach to your calipers, so your calipers are free for other measurements. Machined from stainless steel. May not work for cartridges with bullets seated to factory/SAAMI COAL.
Avalilable in two sizes:
#1 | 224, 6MM, .257, 6.5MM, 7MM, .308 Calibre
#2 | .172, .204, .224, .270, .308, .338 Calibre
