Pacific Tool and Gauge offers two lengths of headspace gauges per rifle caliber. In order from the shortest to longest, they are:MIN and NO-GO:

  1. MIN: Corresponds to the minimum chamber dimensions. If a rifle closes on a Min gauge, the chamber will accept ammunition that is made to CIP’s maximum specifications. The MIN gauge is essential for checking a newly-reamed chamber in order to ensure a tight, accurate and safe chamber that will accept CIP maximum ammo. Although the MIN gauge is necessary for a gunsmith or armorer, it usually has fewer applications for the collector or surplus firearms purchaser.
  2. MAX: Corresponds to the maximum headspace Forster recommends for gunsmiths chambering new, bolt action rifles. This is NOT a SAAMI-maximum measurement. If a rifle closes on a NO-GO gauge, it may still be within SAAMI specifications or it may have excessive headspace. To determine if there is excessive headspace, the chamber should then be checked with a FIELD gauge. The NO-GO gauge is a valuable tool for checking a newly-reamed chamber in order to ensure a tight and accurate chamber.
