    There is a video on the site that explains it very well. It gives detent adjustment to your die depth similar to the detent adjustment on scope turrets.

    There is a niche market for guys that have to have the best of everything. $50 rings fit right in.

    Like all of John's products it's marketed at the advanced shooter/reloader/competitor. If you're not monitoring your shoulder setback it's not for you. If you are maintaining a specific shoulder bump on multiple chambers it is a very good product.

    https://www.whiddengunworks.com/univ...ble-lock-ring/

    Each click is metered in true 1 thousandths adjustment and has .100’’ total available travel. Those loading for two rifles with different headspace can easily optimize the shoulder bump for each rifle.
