.308 + 208 amax + rl-17 + new to realoading = confused

Trying to load up some 208 amax's backed by some rl17. From guys that are using this combo, do you have long chambers, or are you compressing loads? I can't imagine a 208 amax fitting on top of 49 gr of rl17. I have a long action, so length is no issue unless I run into the lands(my understanding is that amax's don't want to be there).

Thanks for the clarification.

Well, answered my own question. Just needed to search some more. Thought compressed loads were a bad thing..makes total sense now. All are seated and ready to smoke the chrono.

Thanks
