I'm actually jumping them .210, and you're right, that is a long way typically. Maybe it matters for these cutting edge bullets, but it definitely hasn't mattered for the Barnes LRXs that I've been shooting at the same COAL.
I guess it's worth trying to push them out farther, but ideally that means a different bullet all together with the CE bullets, since they suggest putting their "seal tite band" right at the case mouth.
I'd really like to be able to use my mag box, if possible, but I realize that's not an absolute requirement. If long bullets become my new reality, I could always have a Wyatt's extended box fitted.
