What if the bullet stays in the lands and case comes out....voila...you now have a jammed bullet and action full of powder?
Hunting rifles need to be MOA accuracy only and consistent cold barrel POI.
Ragged one-hole group type accuracy is not needed.
I seat my Accubonds about .020 off the lands and have not trouble getting MOA out of a stock Ruger#1. In accurized bolt gun sub MOA should be easily achievable without seating a bullet into the lands???
IF not I am picking a different powder and/or bullet....
