    Ok so what i came up with for my Tikka T3 with a magazine. I dont have a manual, but after research i feel this is a good starting point what do you guys think?

    Norma 270 WSM brass
    150gr berger vld hunting
    RL-19 56gr
    2.78 oal

    Im not sure how much longer i can make my oal and still be able to feed through my magazine.

    I don't use any Reloader powder for my 270 WSM but with loading anything, but especially the Bergers I would find where the bullet touches the lands. You need this as a base line to know just how far of the lands you are so you can tune the seating depth and know what's going on.
    The Alliant web site has a load for the 150's with 60gr of R19 so the 56 should be good.

    Ok well i use the cleaning rod method as that is all i have right now. I got a measurement of 2.80". If correctly measured im .02" off the lands correct? Im not sure how much i trust this method though.
