The 300gr OTM has a hybrid ogive, it's not going to give you the possible fits that a VLD would, you should have a much broader range that the bullet will shoot well in.

Re: Wby Accumark Berger 300Gn Seating Issues

Well it was really windy today so no good results However i do know now that i need to set the shoulder back 3 thousands in order to get it to chamber freely. They are set to 2 thou currently. I seated them as deep as i could and still have the mouth sit on the bearing surface. They wont fit in the mag, but that does not bother me. Ill play around next non windy day ill see how these group.

I had a few issues where the berger indexed off the seating stem since bullet is so pointed and metplate varies, I clearanced my stem w/ drill, on a micro forester, this helped get my oal more consistent.

Don't worry about the lands in the Weatherby's as others mention there is a lot of freebore and most shoot fine loaded just short of mag length say 20 thous, just make sure they feed. Also if this is a factory barrel I had a tough time with the heavy bullets the 250's shot better in a factory rifle also had to play a lot with powders.
