204 ruger- free bore

i'm sure most of u loading for the 204 ruger have noticed most factory rifles have alot of free bore.
so do u just seat the bullet to the OCL which i believe is 2.26 or seat it out to the max lenght that it will work wit the mag, which is noramally longer.

i have found that the 38 gr sierra bk does not mind the jump in most rifles. anybody else notice that?

also the 26 gr barnes vg dont mind the jump at least in my gun. actually seat them shorter than 2.26, that way i never have to adjust the seating die.

but the 40 and 32 gr hornady just dont wanna work but do shoot better if i seat them out to as long as the mag will allow. but nothing under 1.5 inches.

40 gr nosler seated to max overall mag length will group 1 inch whit 5 shots.

have tried h-4895, blc-2, and h-335
