    All great info from every one... Take accurate readings.. And good notes... For all my hunting rifles.. I load the over all length long.. As long as it will function out of the mag... With further load development.. There is only one way to go.. And that is shorter.. If it doesn't shoot well there..

    Thanks I appreciate it!

    Seems a caliper would be the next item I would want. Seating the bullet to the rifles liking can make or break the accuracy. Something you may consider also is to buy cheap bullets to get started. Once you get the process down then start playing with the bullet you want to hunt with. When I started loading for my daughters.243 I bought a box of Speer boat tail spritzer and they dialed in very quickly, she's killed two bucks with them. I've yet to bother with anything else, as they say it's all about placement.
    When choosing a bullet try to research what length bullet your rifle should be shooting. I can't remember the formula off the top of my head but it's something to do with caliber, barrel twist and barrel length.
