I have had real good luck seating them to magazine length, like real good luck. The 30-06 and 300WBY are to mag length my 270WSM is at .015 off the lands.
If you haven't read the sticky on Bergers, do it is worth doing. I have been trying mag length or a few thou into the lands then I go at it like Berger suggest but maybe a little finer. I think the 185's will be awsome in the 30-06! Getting the Best Precision and Accuracy from Berger VLD bullets in Your Rifle
