2.971" That is .014" off the lands. I use a long action. You could seat it deeper if you wanted too.

    Yeah I am shooting the amax out of mine and it prints ragged one hole groups with 168 amax and 46 grains of varget seated to 2.8

    I have shot a ton of steel and rocks out to a grand and if the wind isnt ripping holds it's own .

    I have never messed with the berger hybrids thought about it, but why try to fix it if it ain't broke.

    The 308 is a super round for working on your longrange skills with out breaking the bank

    That is exactly wanted to hear, after reading about the stability issues of the 168 SMK i wrote off all 168s thinking they all have this problem, good to hear success with the 168 Amax to 1k

    Used 40.5gr of LT32, lapua brass, 210 primers, 185 gr berger jufggernaut, .001 off the lands. 100 yard group was about 1/10 of an inch. Bullet speed at 1000 yards above mach 1.2. Shooting a Savage10BA with a 26' barrel.
    Fluctuating 7 to 12 h winds at the 1000 yard range but still shot a 15' group. LT 32 does not work in my AR 10,as it causes it to short stroke.
    For a bolt action 308, LT32 gets an A.
