Re: please advise re: seating depth
This is my suggestion,
1) decide which bullet you must hunt with using the mag. functionally
2) Set the shoulder back on the barrel, .090" or whatever it takes to use the mag with the selected bullet, trim the tenon length accordingly, and then run a reamer of the appropriate throat length the needed distance to fix the problem. You may lose some thread off the tenon, but it will most likely be less than 2 threads, and a non issue. If you lengthen the mag well on most of these bolt guns, you get too close to the material that supports the lower recoil lug, and I for one start to get nervous. The backside may not give you the distance you need, measure very carefully, I think the back side will get you more on a Win than a Rem.
