amax lengths

hey guys just doing a little reloading tonight with 162gr amax. first time loading these bullets and was suprised with the difference in c.o.a.l with these bullets. how much of a oal of the cartridge with a polymer tipped bullet acceptable? i was regularly getting reading 20 to 25 thousandth difference.

WOW! I would not find that acceptable at all.

I use 105 AMAX in my .243 and I have not found even 1 that was off by more than a couple thousands.

Re: amax lengths

I shoot the 162 A-max and it's only a thousand here or there. Are you measuring the total length of the bullet or measuring off the ogive?

Re: amax lengths

well i have been measuring total length and maybe all of my variance is in the polymer tip?

Re: amax lengths

Yeah, don't measure the tips they are pretty erratic. measure to the ogive that position will yield the most consistent results. YMMV
