Longest surface bearing .308 Caliber 180 grain bullet

Does anyone know the surface bearing lengths of the Accubond, Scirocco Swift II and Interbond in a .308 180 grain bullet?

I am curious to see the differences in the bullets and this is just a hunch, but figure since they are all about the same length overall, if I shoot the one with the longest surface bearing, I technically should be able to get the ogive closer to the lands so I am not jumping the bullet as far. I am limited by the COAL due to by magazine length.

Does this make sense?
