Case length problems.
So I let my neighbor borrow my reloading set-up last week to work up some rounds for his rifle. We both happen to shoot the same caliber and I had enough loose ones rolling around that I figured itd be okay for a bit. Anyways that being said I got it back the other day and proceeded to load last night. This is the Lee Classic loader, where you do it all by hand with a hammer, I'm still getting started mind you. Back to the point, I didn't happen to check my seating depth and apparently he had adjusted my dies so instead of the 3.32" overall length that I use it is now 3.19". I didn't notice till I did 5 of them and sat them in the box next to some others and noticed somthing wasn't right. I set my depth back to where it was and went back to loading but I'm curious about those short ones. If I fire those in my rifle will there be any chance of adverse effects with my rifle? The reccomended OAL for 270 win is 3.34" but I go 3.32" for personal preference. Not really sure why, I just do. I just wanted to know if I should just give these back to my neighbor and let him deal with it since that was apparently what he loaded his to, or if these are okay to shoot. Just wondering if there is a reason to reload that short that I don't know about or if its dangerous and I need to say somthing to him. Anybody got any info for me? If it helps the rifle is a stock browning a-bolt with a sporter barrel, so its not changed from factory in any way.
KEEP CALM AND "PRESS" ON.
