It's true that some rifles like longer OAL's better with the bullet closer to the lands, but not all rifles are the same. As long as you're not pushing the nose of the bullet down into the case mouth it's ok.
Other things you can try to improve accuracy are: different powder charges and powder types and different weights of bullets.
Thanks for the reply Bryan,
I guess if the rifle likes them deep then thats how I'll load them, I just wanted to check to see if anyone thought I might be doing something wrong. Ive played with different charges from 61grns up to 65grns and it really shoots the best at 63 grns. As far as trying different weights of bullets I may have to try that, but Ive already got 2 boxes of the 210 VLD's and at $42 a box Im gonna have to work with them till they are gone.
I dont care how deep the bullets are seated except for the fact that I read the deeper you seat/farther off the lands the more your velocity drops off. As long as I can get 2850+fps with the load I think it will be ok. Im gonna shoot it at 200-400 yds and see how it does.
