    I am shooting a 300 Roy with 180 E-tips. Can anyone tell me where the E-Tips prefer to be seated in relation to max COAL? Thanks

    No. It's not a matter of where the bullets prefer to be seated, it's where the rifle perfers them to be seated with your prefered powder charge. Experiment.

    In the box of E-Tips I got they recommend .050" to .100" off the rifling and not to exceed mid loads.
