Not 100% sure what you are asking, but I have found the 300 OTM to be very forgiving in the seating department. One of my best 338 LM loads was -.065" off the lands.

Re: 300 otm ?

I got ya. Chances are with the method you used you could be close to just touching the lands than .085". I did see a little better ES seated closer but feel that could very well be just what that chamber and barrel liked. I think you will get what you are looking for. I have seated some smaller Hybrids as far as -180" in Wby's and they shot very well.

It has been reported that as far as ES is concerned RL33 prefers to be closer to the lands than jumping a fair way.

The only thing that matters is what your rifle tells you it likes or doesn't as the case may been.

Get a load sorted at 100 then test it further out to see if it stacks up.
