    Levi, I can seat my 200 gr Accubonds out to 3.625 in That is measured to the tip of the bullet. My real seating depth started with a bullet tip length, but now I use Stoney Point tools. At 3.625 in at the tip, they still fit in the mag of my BDL. Using the Stoney Point tool compensates for any tip variation. mtmuley

    The 200 acb has a higher BC and will fly better at long range.-< meaning less drop and more important, less wind drift.

    how is powder fowling with that load. i was using rutumbo in a 27 in lilja 300rum and could only get about 12 rounds down range before it was powder fouled. I then switched to H1000 and can can shoot more then my shoulder can take. 92.5 grs H1000, 200 Gr AB, nosler brass, Fed 215 loaded to 3.61 shoots 1/2 inch @3175 fps

    I am the way I am because I watched the movies "Red Dawn" and "Tremors" at a impressionable age.
