Used to work in precision grinding for helicopter transmissions. How would you like to work with +/- .0001 all day. Not much fun with a .0002 range. I once machined a fixture(used to hold parts for machining) and it went to inspection to be checked. It was rejected and sent back to remove another .0008 of stock. We asked them what they used to check it with and they were using dial calipers to check a .0002 tolerance. We showed them that it checked ok with a dial bore gage. New inspector got an earfull. Never saw dial bore that would measure tenths.

Same here, but I only got 2 years on first battery.

Look at all the brands offered, the one I bought at HF is the exact same as many out there - the exception is color and price. Natchez has the RCBS on sale for $63 - excat same as HF, but I paid $10

Use the HF caliper for all reloading chores, including long range rifle. See no reason to replace it at the moment.

Just buy the one that makes you happy!
