Re: 223 OAL not being consistant
I've noticed a few things tbat can cause this inconsistencey.
1. Necks with variable resistence to seating. Could be brass thickness, age, cleanliness, tension, etc
2. Powder column touching the bullet base
3. Bullet seater that is mismatched to the bullet ogive. Bullet tip should not touch seater.
4. Bullets that are poorly manufactured, but this is unlikely.
Just a few things to consider.
