    Well, I can say I have seen one a long time ago, long enough to be forgotten.

    Looks like a gauge to segregate 22 rf by rim thickness.

    Yep, rim thickness gage for sorting. Almost bought one years ago, decided to just trust Eley to do it.

    It is a Neil Jones .22 RF head space gauge.
    Neat little tool.
    I'm sure for precision .22RF shooters, it is a must.
    For me and my 10/22, I don't think so.
    But you never know.
    I'll give it a try, and maybe make a report.
    If I can find some time

    I made a rim gauge for the 30-30 family of cases. I intended to make an adapter for .22 RF but never did.
