I am seriously looking at some wildcat bullets but I have a question. If I seat the bullets so the major diameter at the base is at the junction of the neck and taper (top picture) then I can't fit the rounds in my mag by about 1/8 - 3/16 inch. This means that if I want to seat the bullets to fit through the mag the bullets will be below the "ring of death" and the base will end up back around the lower part of the case taper. (Lower picture.)
I would appreciate some thoughts on this concerning the pros and cons regarding case pressure, accuracy because of the bullet being seated so far back in the case (below the upper end of the taper) and also having an ULD ogive farther away from the lands.
Give me your thoughts. Should I consider a shorter ogive sacrificing BC to gain desired loading length and to recover possible loss in accuracy?
I don't know. I've never ordered custom bullets before.
Just for the sake of having the numbers:
Bullet OAL 1.315"
Mag useable COL 2.830"
.308 win case OAL 2.005"
