    Good news, Benchmark says my barrel (6mm AI) is done and on it's way home!
    So I need a 6mm AI go gauge, not finding one. Know where I can get one?
    Am I going to have to have PTG make me one?
    If I find used I can use a 260 AI, 7mm08 AI, or a 308 AI correct or is that for a 243 AI... educate me please.
    Thanks

    The 260AI, 7mm08AI and 308AI would work for a .243AI but not the 6mmAI! Manson Reamers makes a 6mmAI headspace gauges too if you have no luck with PT&G!

    Not if it's a pre threaded and chambered barrel for a savage using the nut.
