.300 RUM throat question

hi all, first post here.

have a .300 RUM sendero, and am trying to find a the O.A.L. so i can start reloading.

i just got my hornady o.a.l. gauge and the modified .300 case and tried it out.

i came up with 3.788, duplicated with a second measurement

does this seem long?

the max O.A.L. i have seen most is 3.600

thanks - BS

Re: .300 RUM throat question

WSlayman, thanks for the reply.

yes it does shoot very well, with factory ammo and my moderate skills i can get 2" groups at 200.

i'm just starting to reload for it as the prices for factory stuff is like $4 a round nowadays (and i really want to get into reloading).

is it possible to get an accurate load recipe that will fit inside the magwell?, or should i just got to something longer and top load them all?.

thanks -
