I'm just getting into reloading and had a question about OAL in a 7mag. I took a couple of resized cases and put a bullet in them. I then stuck the case in my rifle and let the lands seat the bullets in the case. Each of the 3 times I did this game me 3.361". Am I correct in considering this my max OAL for this rifle? If so, I was thinking about backing off to 3.351 or 3.341 for my seating depth, which would put me .01 or .02 off the lands. Does this sound like a good starting place?
