Here’s a co-workers reloading question. He’s new to reloading and trying to figure it all out. Just wondered how you’d answer his question?
Reloading for a 30-06
New model 70 win
He’s trying to find a proper seating depth.
He says, I have measured where my bullet contacts the lands of the barrel and seated the bullet another .010 deeper. My reloading manual says max C.O.L. (cartridge overall length) is 3.340 and when I measure the round after seating the bullet with the .010 deeper and I’m nearly .175 longer than the max C.O.L. listed in the manual. What’s with that?
