Long throated 300 win mag

Hey guys, I am having trouble with seating depth in my 300 win mag. I have a very long throat and need a bullet that is longer so it can be seated out to the lands. Any suggestions? I have tried the 190 SMK, and the 180 SST. The SST shot better but I think I can do a bit more with a longer bullet. The Barnes 180 XBT looks to have a good (bc) but I am not sure if it has a longer ogive.

Sampson

Have you tried the 220 Gr Sierra MK or the 210 Berger or JLK?

The 220 MK should work well in your 300 Win Mag plus it has a higher BC (.655) then the ones you mentioned.
