.264 Win Mag question

I have a Ruger Hawkeye 77 in .264 and am currently shooting 130 grain Nosler Accubonds over .5 grain below max of RL19; I believe its 58.0 grains. Don't know if anyone has a similair experience but my handloads wont chamber at the COAL of 3.340. I've had to shorten mine to 3.240 for them to chamber. It will chamber Remington factory 140's without a problem. Can't understand why. I really can't complain tho. This load shoots just a hair over a half inch and its not anywhere near a compressed load.
Anyone have a similiar issue or know why this may be?

I ha;ve found that the accubonds need to be seated slightly deaper than some other bullets when yhou are comparing overall length. lightly size a case, put in a bullet and see how far the lands push the bullet back in,then change your seatinag die about 10 thou and give it a try.

Thanks for the response. Did that, was surprised how short I had to go. Accuracy is good so no big deal. Just wondered if others experienced anything similiar.
