I'm using Berger 180VLD Hunting. I'll get the measurements and possibly some pics... if I remember how to post them. I'm pretty sure the bullet does seat past the neck/shoulder junction and easily fits in a std Rem magazine box.

Shoulder width after firing is .516 and comes out of the sizer die .513 for my rifle.

The OAL is 3.455 with the 180VLD hunting and the Hornady Comparator length is 2.738. The base of the bullet seats to the base of the shoulder.

Might want to call Gunwerks, as I said in a post on page 9, we bought a reamer for a 7LRM for $235 from Gunwerks. I did not do the transaction, my smith did. Might be a different story smith to smith rather than an individual trying to buy a reamer.
