    Has anybody loaded this combo for use in a Remington standard SA magbox?
    Will it fit w/o a large jump to the lands?

    For comparison in my rifle:
    168TSX has to jump 1/10 inch in order to fit the magbox w/o binding.
    168AMAX sits 15 thous off the lands and will fit the magbox fine.

    Would like to try the Berger for giggles if it will fit...

    I loaded some of these up for a buddy the other day with some 4831sc that shot very well in his new factory remington 300 wsm. We didnt have much time to play with seating depth, as we were just breaking in the barrel, but they shot 1/2 or a little less at 100.
