Yes sir. Just lucky, got a great gun. That gives me .002 jump. Shoots 5 (retumbo &139grSST) into .72"+- as long as I do my share.

I think what he was referring to is that at your COL, it will not fit into his, or ANY standard magazine. A Remington mag is about 3.690 +-. a Winchester, is about 3.630. So, obviously you are single feeding them, right?
That is some awesome velocity. How does that bullet hold up on impact? Just curious.
How much free bore does your gun have??

Hornady 9th Edition. I strongly encourage you to read the first chapter of the book and commit it to memory before you start loading.

They go into real detail, but with terms a layman can understand easily about ballistics and reloading.

My error. I'm currently moving my reloading setup to my son's house so I'm only able to refer to my notes and some targets still here. Actual COL on that load is more nearly 3.60. My notes refer to overall as measured to the ogive using a comparator; consequently the comparator length (+-0.50") needs to be subtracted from my noted 4.088 in order to get the true COL. ie 4.088 - .50 = 3.588. In my haste to give an answer I forgot! Need to unpack equipment & paperwork to get freebore info, and measure comparator to get actual COL. Regarding bullet condition, don't know on that one as it was a pass through. On a different occasion @ about 40yds, on a high front shoulder shot billet completely fragmented; but then again that buck ever took a step, or a breath.
