If you set the headspace originally with some schmutz or a chip in the chamber, you would get a false reading with your gages. If the cases look OK, test regularly with a field gage and don't sweat it until it fails that test too. Then you DEFINATELY would need to fix it.

If your chamber was squeeky clean, that means metal has flowed in only 60 rounds. Check your lugs and locking recesses. I would think they are dead soft and the rifle is junked.
