If it's a new bolt you want the NO GO gauge in order to leave some room for the bolt lugs to settle in a little. A FIELD gauge is used when the bolt and receiver have worked together for a bit. An alternative would be to use the FIELD gauge, but keep checking periodically to be sure you didn't grow past it as the lugs settled.
