Will the ammo I plan to shoot determine headspace?I have an SAK NM barrel.I may shoot match ammo from time to time, but in all honesty will probably shoot surplus 90% of the time.I'm more than a little confused on the headspace thing. saami vs. nato "nogo" on saami is "go" for nato?etc., etc., etc... :?
I have kuhnhausens book on the way hoping this will help.I plan to send the rifle off for assembly so I'm just wondering when I get it back am I ok to go with both types of ammo?

If you plan to shoot nato spec. surplus ammo most of the time, then it should be headspaced for just that.

Shooting match ammo would be no problem either if headspace is on the short end.

I just lapped a bolt to 1.633 for shooting surplus which will also be O.K. for commercial or match as well.
