Hello all, I was just wondering what OAL is average for a Shiloh or other makes are. I can load to between 2.90 and 3.00 in mine and it seems to be touching lands. Thats fine with me groups with certain test loads are comming along great. But, I see PP fellas seating their bullets only 1/4 to 3/16 and can not figure how this can be done with the 535 gr rounds. I have to seat mine greater than 1/2 in (.565) or the lands will pull the bullet out of the case if I try and remove. I see that the popular choice for long range is over 500 gr.
Are these longer seated rounds in a 45-90 or 45-110? I have to cover almost all the GG'S to have mine chamber.
