Remington vs Savage Throat Length

I'm working up a load for my sons new Savage 10 308. I have never reloaded for a Savage before. I reload for Remington 700s, and my 308 the bullet is set much further out to get near the lands compared to the Savage.

COL
Savage
Touching Lands = 2.675"
Pushed into Lands = 2.791"

Remington
Touching Lands = 2.942"

Is this normal?

I may just me used to Remingtons, seems that I have to seat the bullets out pretty far on most of them,

Normal...all Remingtons have throats like a giraffe.

compairing a couple 22-250's to a remington 22-250 showed a .070" difference! .223's are also similar.

I don't really understand that statement...
2.791 - .2.675 = .116" doesn't make sense.

After about .010" jam, you're just seating the bullet deeper as you close the bolt.

I'm using a stoney point AOL tool to get the AOL of the cartridge. When I push the bullet in to were it stops I get the first measurement 2.675 and If I firmly push on the plunger of the tool the bullet will go a little further and I get 2.791.

This is one of the reasons I asked the question because I wasn't sure. With my Remingtons I don't see the same results. I get about the .010" difference from when the bullet just stops to where I firmly push on the plunger.
