Why would you say that?

Well if understand what you were saying correctly the cartridge on top of the mag with a longer OAL will give a different POI to the other cartridges lower in the mag because they have a shorter OAL??
Different OAL's so different pressure so different POI, right??
Or did I miss understand you??

I think you could probably shorten them enough to fit, and it would not hurt accuracy enough that you would notice. You are after hunting accuracy, not benchrest. .25" at 100 would only make you 2" off at 800, and I'm sure at that range that you have a lot of other variables. I can't personally shoot that far but I am sure you are a lot better shot than I am. The longest shot I ever made, was on an Antelope at 450 yds. with 140 gr. 270. Held 6' over his back and hit right in the heart, and I know it was luck on my part. My calculation might be way off also.

What I was saying was that the reloaded round that will not fit down into the magazine well will fit in the top of the magazine where the bullet tip overhangs the well and rests over the feed ramp. Therefore, you can put one (long) reload into the chamber and another one into the top of the magazine and have a two shot rifle. I've done this many times and never felt handicapped by having only one follow up shot available.

Shorten them to fit in your mag. Odds are any change in accuracy will be miniscule. I had the same issue with my .308 and I didn't notice a change in accuracy at all.

I single feed. My rifle shot better with a short jump so i do just like broz said and drop one in the gun and keep two near by. If you shoot a long cartridge and then follow it up with a shorter cartridge, depending on the size difference in the two, you could experience a POI shift. If not you did a really good job developing a load and extending the bullet further in the case isn't necessary.
