So i have another question...I have followed the advise from some of you here(and read in the nosler handbook) the way you go about finding the depth at which the bullet hits the lands.(if im not saying that correct im sure someone will let me know). I was surprised however to find that of the two bullets i was testing with one was seated quite a bit(to me anyway) deeper than the other.
Is it common for a heavier bullet with a higher bc to have a longer over all length than a lighter bullet?
These were my findings:
Hornady 180 GR SP Interlock.........3.440 overall length
Sierra 200 GR Spitzer Gameking........3.501 overall length
The nosler book says to seat the bullet .015 deeper than these readings.
I just wanted to make sure i was not missing something. I was going to go to the range tomorrow and the idea of shooting a bullet that i made is exciting and scary at the same time...
