    Flattening of Blackout brass at the case mouth is normally the result of the shorter case (rather than the longer .223 case) being able to spin in a smaller radius and hitting the upper receiver case deflector...perfectly normal.

    I finally got my gauges back from Forster with a letter explaining the problem. Who ever guessed that the gauge was miss marked is the Winner Winner Chicken Dinner. It actually wasn't a Go gauge. Unfortunately for me I couldn't wait for them to figure out what was wrong, and bought a different brand. Basically I don't need them anymore. I did check them when I got them today, and they work perfectly. I am supposed to have a follow up call with Forster, so maybe they will compensate me for all my hassle. Either way I will be selling the Forster gauges.

    Gotta shake my head wondering how many other BAD Sets were shipped? Plus builders setting barrels on uppers with them.

    When I bought them new they were packaged separately with each package labeled. Each gauge was also labeled. The Go gauge had go on it, and the sealed package had go on it.

    Yeah I know right. I went through a lot of hassle shipping my barrel back, and then the gauges. The letter said this was a rare occurrence, but the barrel manufacturer told me this happened the other day to another one of their customers.

    Anyone making barrels would likely very quickly figure out something was wrong. Most builders are basically part assemblers and it could cause some problem as was the case here. Someone doing this on any scale could do a quick field check of the suspect gauge by putting it into chambers known to be in spec.
    Seems like a good idea to verify a gauge in someway before one uses it. but very hard to do for someone that is assembling just one rifle in a specific chambering.

    Well, I know I don’t want to buy chamber gauges from Forster. They should have offered to reimburse you for the shipping charges you incurred , in my opinion.
    The only reason to disarm a man is to force him to do something that you couldn’t force him to do if he was armed.

    They sent me a label to ship to them, so shipping was covered with them both ways. I did have to pay to ship my barrel to the barrel manufacturer.
