Seating depth is generally accepted as the depth from the lands of the rifling grove to the ogive of the bullet. You are saying the bullet is seated into the neck .260" deep from the base of the base of the bullet. You should have a lot of room for more powder for sure. Good luck

I got some retumbo and with 56.5 gr I got 2875 and 2887 with 2 shots through the chrony in my 24" barrel. I appreciate all the feedback and suggestions.
Thanks,
Rob.

About right. I am 57 and shot 630 yards tonight. Had 3 that measured 1" and a flyer that put the group at 3".
