If case bust in a hunting situation, chances are your gun will not extract spent case.
I take a nail with me just in case to extract the busted case.
Can ruin a hunt if your not careful.
Or even a target shooting scenario.

Thought I would share.

I carry one like below in pic. This nail has a little round ball on the end. This helps with getting under rim of cartridge. Works good.
Knife hard to get in the chamber area depending on how wide blade is. Much rather use the nail. I have had times knife won’t achieve.

I broke my set of calibers just recently. Broke battery holder ear off.
So I can’t check.
Sorry.
Fixing to order another set.

The nail above is one like what pack with me. Not rusty like the one in pic.

Interesting idea. My squirrel/small critter knife, is a Case Muskrat c. 1968 and I have found it to be useful in getting out a dodgey 22LR and the once in a blue moon Mach 2 round.

I prefer Vernier or dial type calipers, batteries not included or needed

But have never had a head separation, Mostly Eley, and Hornady NTX.
Knock on wood.

Squirrel mentioned his old set was digital so I recommended a good one. I use digital calipers now, but like you I used dial for years . Glad I finally switched over. I also don't think he is talking about a head separation, I think he is just talking about the very common case split.

COrrect, split neck will make extracting tough. Using the rifles extractors. So use the nail to extract.
