Hey guys does this sound right. This is a 145 LRX touching the lands. I'm getting ready to play with seating depths and I'm not sure if this is right. From the tip of the bullet to the bottom of the brass is 3.811

Oglebuck, that sounds about right. A typical Remington OAL that fits in the box runs at or about 3.688 . That being said, that means you have about 123/1000 free bore, ( +-). P/ S, I love that bullet. I shoot them at box length, max length, and they shoot great. One word of caution!!!! Be careful, if your intention is to seat them into the riflings and single shoot them! Because the copper dosen't compress like a lead core bullet does, and pressures will peak quickly, and you will not get optimum velocity. Just a little FYI in the event you didn't know that.
I have heard of a few with as much as .200 free bore!
How is your gun shooting those bullets, by the way? Good luck!
Bob

Gerryb, I think you are right, but the question is, how long will it be this time. I am in good shape on bullets in all calibers. Just picked up a lb of H1000, and H4831 sc. ( just for a little cushion).The only thing I am having problems getting is 215GM primers. I am not in panic mode like a lot of people are. This is the time of year that I get my supplies anyway. I probably have enough supplies for about two years of normal shooting, and hunting as well.
I think now, and after all this " hoopla" we ALL will be a little more vigilant , and STAY stocked, just in case. And just when things were starting to become readily avail too! This really does suck!

Bob, I'm looking to get a larger amount of powder as I buy small amounts now. How long does it last? Any special way of storing it?
