    Gator check thickness

    I've been using copper Gator checks in .30cal.
    The AL checks are a little cheaper, so I'd like to try them.
    I want to get the same thickness in the AL check.
    Looking at Sage's, they show a 0.15 thickness AL check.
    But they don't show the thickness of their Gator check.

    What is the thickness of the Gator copper check????

    I don't think those are Gator checks.
    They don't say "Gator" in the description.
    I've been using Gator checks. Want to keep the same thickness, and try aluminium checks.
    They maybe the same, but which is it???? .015 or .017???

    Our 30 Sages are running .0175 thick with this new order of gilded copper. Abunaitoo try our .303 aluminum checks, .017 thick same shank size. They are a little taller and stick like glue.
