Magazine Length

My kimber montana .300wm has a 3.405" MAX magazine length. what do you guys think about attempting to fit 210gr bergers? Do you guys think its long enough to find a right load?

    *maybe*
    however the 208 and 225 match will fit
    the real question is will it still shoot. most are loading the 208 close to the lands. the nose is long and the bearing short. makes it hard to stay straight going threw the throat. the 225 has the same nose but longer bearing so it should make the jump better. it is still wise to play with seating depth to time the barrel

    Does anybody load 210gr bergers that come in at under 3.405" for the .300WM? I would like to load them so they fit in my magazine and still have the best accuracy I can get from this rifle.
