I'm at the very beginning stages of load development with a 6.5 creedmoor. The rifle has a detachable magazine that will allow a load length of 2.860". After doing my max oal measuring, the max oacl for this rifle and the 140 gr bullets I chose is 1.100" longer than the magazine would allow. Hell its nearly an inch longer than the case with the bullet barely touching the neck much less seated. Has anyone encountered a 6.5 creedmoor with this long of a throat?
