Seating depth test question

Hi Guys,
I'm getting ready to reload for a seating depth test for for my .243 win. Just wondering if I should load with a lower end load or is it safe to go with 44.7 when 45gr is max? I tested charge and 44.7 is my OCW. Any help would b appreciated!

Re: Seating depth test question

What does OCW stand for? (Optimum Charge Weight)?

If you worked up and found the max load for that rifle and the 44.7 is a safe load then yes use it while finding a good seating depth. Once a optimum depth is found then you can tweak the powder.
