I'm looking to purchase the "correct" gauges and just wanted to make sure mothing has changed from your original recommendations for the 223 go, 5.56 go and field II gauges. Figured I'd try here first. I may PM you to let you know I asked a question here.
Assuming we're talking about Forster gauges and .223/5.56 right?

If so, I consider the NO GO pretty worthless unless you want to track wear.

.223 GO tell you it's safe for .223
5.56 GO tells you if it's safe for 5.56

If the 5.56 Field closes on either chamber its unsafe.

Anything in between GO and FIELD become academic and has little practical value.

If you want to use NO GO's there are two separate specs. One for .223 amd one for 5.56. the 5.56 NO GO is not available from Forster unless you buy the 11 Piece set.

Wow, that was fast.

Yes, .223/5.56.

I think this covers it.

One more question for you then, and I hope this isn't too dumb, if it's a GO on the 5.56 doesn't that mean it'll be a GO on the .223? (Or, is it vice versa?)

I'm asking because I'm giving serious consideration to building my own upper. Before I do, I'd like to take one of your courses but I'll be heading south for the winter so can't happen til spring or later. Just trying to get my ducks in a row beforehand.
