Ok for starters I know this bullet is made for the 6.8 spc. I had some that I picked up in a trade at a gun show so I thought I'd just load some to see how the do. The gun used was a brand new Weatherby Vanguard series 2. I also have an older model Weatherby Vanguard. I loaded the bullets to an OAL of 3.350. My mag won't allow but a max of 3.44 OAL in both guns. So I attempt to chamber the loaded round and its a no go. So I seat them even further down to 3.25 OAL. Still a no go. Again I go down to 3.150 OAL. Still wont bolt. So now I push it down to 3.070 OAL. Now it will load in to the chamber but I'm not certain about this. Just looking for some insight. I more than likely will not attempt to use these bullets but I would like to see of any of y'all have.
