Just taken recipt of mt new 6.5x55 rifle and started to relaod for as ession thsi afternoon. Measured the OAL for 2 of the bullets im going to reload with my OAL guage. As expected the 95g VMAX bullet was basically at the end of the case before it touched the lands adn the 129g Hornady SST is out a good way also (due to the boat tail there aint enough bearing surface to put this 10 or even 20 thou off the lands).
I ahev decided to seat both bullets to calibre depth(plus the boat tail on the SST). Is this the best approach? Dont think I ahev many other options. Got some Berger 140g and some Sierra pro hunter 120g to try next.
