If the COL is shorter (bullet seated deeper) will the velocity be more or less than if its not seated as deep ? And why ? Also I'm shooting a 308win with 168 amax how far off the lands should I be. Right now it looks like .115 of an inch is that ok?? Thanks for any input!

It depends on several variables, including powder burn rate, bore size, bullet weight, case volume, how far off the lands you are seating. Other than that, it's no problem. !! :D

If it works, it's good. No one can honestly tell you how far off the lands you should be. ??

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
