Standby for another novice reloader question!!!
The OAL of my Rem 700 barrel is 2.950", hovever the load plate will only fit a max of 2.830" for overall length when I reload, leaving me (obviously) 0.120" jump, is this going to be a major problem? I realise I could convert to a magazine which may allow a greater overall length, but the conversion kits I have seen are really expensive for the rem 700.
The factory ammo is around 2.7ish" overall length and does shoot quite well, however with my reloads I am struggling to get better than factory. Using varget I have not yet had chance to test a whole range of loads yet, so hope to find the right recipe soon!
Any advice welcome as usual,
