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!
