I just have to check, I am reloading my brothers 7RUM. HOLY COW is the throat long. I can't even seat a 168 berger or 160 Accubonds and hit the lands! Even if I could I would need an additonal .5 inch in the mag well to fit. I have a couple remington 700's but all have custom barrels. This must be waht every one talks about comming form the factor long throats. Is this the Norm? I would have imagined I could at least hit the lands disreguarding the use of the mag box. If I seat the bullets to mag lenght I will be close to .5 inches of the lands. Could this be the reason I am getting carbon down the necks, and high extreme spreads on velocity?
