**Note: Test specimen capacity is 1 inch (Shorten longer and/or pointed bullets to obtain test flat, and/or to fit tester).
**FYI: Ingots typically cool much slower than bullets causing the hardness reading to vary greatly depending on cooling time, temperature of ingot mold, etc.
IMPORTANT: HARDNESS CLAIMS OF COMMERCIAL CAST BULLETS OR COMMERCIAL CASTING ALLOY ARE NOT ALWAYS CORRECT. DO NOT USE THEM AS A HARDNESS STANDARD FOR OUR TESTER BUT VISA VERSA! FEW DELIVER AS ADVERTISED!
**Every tester is manually calibrated and should be trusted as your ‘precision hardness standard’.
