    What are you guys using for overall length? I have 2 wsm that I want to try these in and both are repeaters. One will be a hunting rifle but the other is a bench gun so single feeding isnt a problem.

    Virtually every rifle will be different as to the appropriate cartridge overall length. It will also vary based on the bullet you use. What you need to do is develop a gauge for your individual rifles....

    I started with 2.860" in my 7mm WSM Win 70.........my 175gr Sierra GK is 2.830" which is another good bullet with Reloader [email protected] 66.0 for both.
