I don't know a lot about the lands and where it meets the rifling. I'm using Hornady A-max 140's, if that makes a difference.
If your using 140 amax's and your oal is 2.8 you probably need to seat the bullets further out.
Im running 140gr amax's 2.97. If the AI mag would hold longer I would go longer.
The only way im aware of to be certain if its a more accurate load is to try it and see what happens
