When I sit my 180's out in my STW and shoot them single-shot I get better results, than with the lengths that will currently fit inside my magazine box. Same with my A-Bolt II 7Mag.
Have you tried any of them -.090" to -.130" off the lands? I don't have a rifle now with them closer than -.040"

Might help with some mag boxes for some shooters.

I have some 168 VLD's loaded for the .308 that are not touching the lands, so I'll test those out this weekend and let you know.

My only point is to try to offer another option. The old ways of bearing the VLD in the lands is not the only way they shoot all the time. If you read this by Eris Stecker,

Getting the Best Precision and Accuracy from Berger VLD bullets in Your Rifle

You may find it very helpful. I have seen many rifles shoot with seating depths well past -.100" I never settle for less that .5 moa accuracy at 300 yards either. I test initial seating depths in -.030" increments.

Just another option. Your milage may vary.

I'll give 'er a shot. What do I have to lose, other than some lead...

I'll let you know what I discover.
