One of the big problems with the solid Wilson or other brand gage is that they are not very flexible. They only work for one caliber most of the time and they are made for a limited list of cartridges.

The various gages like the Hornady gage will check the head to shoulder length of dozens to hundreds of different bottle neck rounds.

You can use the Hornady too to determine what length of case is the exact length of your chamber.
You can also use the Hornady gage along with a gunsmith head space gage to determine the exact length of your FL reloading die. When you do this you will find that one brand of reloading die is typically between GO and No-Go lengths while other brands are closer to GO length and still other brands vary quite a bit.
