7-300WSM 180gr Berger at 2950fps(hot) shoots about half minute jammed .005"

I tried backing them out but groups went wild as soon as they came off the lands.

Re: VLD seating depth poll

Just curious, but how are you guys who are seating beyond .100 measuring your seating depth? I use a sinclair comparator and insert and measure off the ogive and it appears the ogive will disapear in the case if seating beyond .100 off the lans.
