opinion on my COAL

while waiting on my dies to arrive, i measuerd the overall distance from the bolt face to the lands which was 3.515 (repeatable) the rifle is a rem. sportsman 78 in .270 cal. i have heard that remingtons have a generous throat and that bullets seated to a acceptable dimension from the lands wont fit in the mag. box, but my mag measures around 3.680 +/-. is this an acception to the rule or have i done somthing wrong?
i am planning on loading for a 130gn sst bt hornady interlock, and a 140gn nosler accubond. i do not plan on starting out with a case lenghth longer than what my reloding books call for, opions please..... E
