I will look thanks for the info
You tube is loaded with all kinds of "how to" videos, this is no exception. Search and decipher which is best for your situation.

For example >>>

I have the LNL and comparator kit from Hornady like on this video >>>

Re: ogive measurment

Thanks for the clarity!!!!

I'll try it on my next session. So the number will be smaller than the OAL but it should be more precise and reproducible due to the fact I'm measuring off the ogive not the tip. Correct?

Your original question did not say .308! Nonetheless, you were provided vital means to measure them accurately.

Reloading books calls for 2.820" OAL, which yours are under. Knowing the measurement from base to ogive might not help you. I suggest you call the OEM and discuss your issue/concern ...

For your ammo contact ...

Federal Cartridge Company
900 Ehlen Drive, Anoka, MN 55303-7503

Fax: (763) 323-2506

They should also know the measurement you are after.

You might also want to consider having your rifle checked by a qualified smith to make sure it is in safe and working order.
