So when checking my COAL at the lands I knew it would be a bit too long and would have to be seated a little deeper, but not this much. My rifle is a standard Browning A-bolt in 270win. Every book I have says the COAL max is 3.34in, but when I check mine to the lands it is 3.41in. I figured it would be a little bit long, but not 0.07in. Is this typical of sporter rifles and to be expected? I check my COAL at the lands by hand seating a bullet into a empty unprimed case, place it gently into the chamber with my finger until I feel resistance, and then slowly close the bolt. I can feel the bullet seating deeper in the case when I do this. I know it will be hard at the lands and I expected to back it off some, but I never expected it to be past the maximum COAL. Is this just to be expected of standard sporter rifles or am I doing something wrong, or does my barrel just happen to be chambered deeper?
