If it is the 3.820" Wyatt, do you ever wish you could seat longer?
3.820", or ~4" center feed Wyatt-- that is the question. Maybe I'll just give up and go single-shot.
I have the 3.800 Wyatt box, thought that this would be long enough, but it isnt - I told my smith to chamber my barrel for up to 240 SMK, and now the mag is too short, my COAL is around 3.85 with Berger 210 VLDs -I measure off the ogive with a Stoney Point OAL gauge, and at the ogive its 3.819 - too long if I want to run rounds from the mag well. The smith didnt bother to ask me which Wyatt box I wanted, and I didnt think that there was more than one to pick, so there ya go.... hope yours fares better. I am not too upset, as I load with very little neck tension, and I am afraid that ramming a loaded cartridge up a ramp will cause some runout (don't know, I may try to load some up and cycle them through and remeasure to see). So single shot I go.
