So if 3 shots group here, and 2 shots group an inch away, but together...That is a sign of a good velocity node, but that your seating deptch needs adjusting.
That sucks that your magazine is so short. I love that the Remington 700 LA's have such a long mag well. I can seat my 185 VLD's in my .30-06 AI right up in the lands if I want, and still not reach maximum mag length.
Works exactly the same for a 7mm RemMag. That's just another reason why I recommend the 7mmRM over a .300 WM. You can't do that with a .300WM, the case and bullets are too long to seat up into or near the lands without having to have a Wyatt's extended mag box installed by your smith. We've tried it with my buddy's 700 SPS .300WM on several occasions with several different bullets. No-go.
