Re: case oal ?
For about $30.00 you can obtain a Stoney Point OAL gauge, and another $6.00 to purchase the 7mm Rem case to go along with it. The will allow you to measure to the nats-ass the OAL where a bullet makes contacts with your rifle's lands. Of course it really is not the bullet tip that makes contact with the lands, it is the ogive of the bullet. In order to measure the length to the ogive you would have to invest another $15.00 to purchase the Stoney Point Comparator.
Check out MidwayUSA's web site, they certainly have other products and brands available as well. For the total investment of around fifty bucks, I'd certainly recommend it, especially if you plan on loading rounds that contact the lands. Keep in mind that seating bullets into the lands does in fact increase pressures over what would be experienced should you seat them with say 20 thousands of freebore; so decrease your charge and work up!
