    The book says SAAMI 3.600. I load mine at 3.630 and would go longer but don't want to shoot single shot.

    I'm right at 3.60 and didn't go longer just because of magazine length.

    I was at 3.660" Pretty much the longest you can go in a rem LA and still function through the magazine. You still get battered tips, even with AB's.

    You should not be using someone elses OAL!
    You should be using your own OAL. Our OAL's have nothing to do with your rifle. OAL can affect pressure so you need test for your self. After your initial measurments you need to determine if you want to seat for magazine or not. If I seated for the magazine my bullets would be almost .10" away from the lands and at that point small variations should not make much diff.
