I don't quite understand the question, is this referring to my Ruger Hawkeye? It's 3.570" for the Hawkeye for 180 grain Nosler Ballistic Tips to touch the lands, however, a new problem I noticed was that, at that length, the OAL was so long that the rifle wouldn't eject it because the very tip got caught up on the front of the ejector port, preventing both the dummy round and the bolt from being removed. Only brute-force was able to overcome that one!
So, if I did manage to somehow sort the magazine out (which I can assure you, to the best of my knowledge, there isn't a gunsmith competent enough here in New Zealand to perform such a task) I'd still have the above situation limiting me from getting the projectile near the lands!
Now, if you're referring to the Sendero, I think that the throat length of the Sendero is gonna determine the OAL of the round, and unfortunately, I don't have one of those (Sendero's) in front of me to determine that, that's what I'd actually like to know! Morgan
