I just measured distance to the lands (Stoney Point gauge) for two bullets in my Sendero in 7mm mag. All measurements were repeatable (4 times for each bullet) to .001 so I feel pretty good about that. The first bullet that I measured was a 140 gr. Sierra Gameking (#1905). OAL measured (to the lands) was 3.480. At this length the bullet was barely in the case and it fell out easily. Of course this was the Stoney Point case but seating depth of the bullet into the case was under 1/4". It doesn't look like I can completely follow the aforementioned testing guidelines of .010, .050, .090, and .130 off of the lands as seating .010 and possibly .050 will not allow for very much neck tension. At least I don't think that it would. Any thoughts? The second bullet was a 150 gr Nosler Ballistic Tip (#28150). The OAL was longer but was deeper into the case. COL was 3.554. I think that I can seat to the full test range mentioned in the earlier post with this bullet. Am I wasting my time trying to seat hunting bullets in the sweet spot?
