I am also curious what the correct seating depth of a bullet in the cartridge. I am assuming that idealy you would want the base edge of the bullet no deeper or no shallower than the neck shoulder junction (correct?). JRW
Its 1 deg 30 mins or 1.5 degrees. I have seen them higher towards the 3 degrees but the 1 30 is standard. Yes you want the gas ring or the boattail bearing surface junction right at or up in the neck of the case above the neck shoulder intersect.
