Re: Seating depth?
samson, Boy, you must have a long throat on that rifle. Well, the only thing you can do is seat the bullet so it fits in the magazine and hope it shoots good. I see in my Hornady manual that the 190gr match bullet has an OAL of 3.500, and the test rifle is a Model 70, Do you mind shooting it single shot? Is this for hunting or target? For target I'd put the bullet .005-.015" off the lands and shoot it, hunting you might want to have it fit in the mag. Whats the max you can put the OAL and still fit the mag.? I just answered that myself, 3.400". So it all depends if you mind shooting it single shot or not, longrangehunting you can probably get away with a single shot, but it may shoot really well with the OAL at 3.390. Only one way to find out.... Fire in the hole! J
