    hi bosun
    i use seirra 150gr spitzer loaded at 2.290" with 45gr of H4895 in my SPSV 26" .you can't get the comparator set to help you in this as remington gave this rifle lots of free bore to the Lan's .i used a 190 gr vld bullet and worked out the c.o.a.l that would give me some bearing on the bullet in the case.
    hope this may be of some use
    all the best

    Is that OAL right? May be a typo..

    Ive been load developing for my .308 R700 with 150gn SST and 165gn Sierra GKs. tride H4895, H335, CCi and Fed primers.

    I found that to get a 150gn SST onto the lands, it was 2.94'' OAL. It grouped ok here but equally as good at 2.81''.

    I found that CCI seemed to work better than the Federal primers and H335 worked better with 150gn SST and the H4895 with the 165 GKs. I found that the MV was more constant with the H4895 opposed to H335.

    I also discovered that it likes the above at the higher end of the load tables. The 165 GKs and CCI Primers with 43gn H4985 and the 150gn SST with 43gn H335 and CCI primers.

    Ive used 150 rounds trying to ge these results.. I had a moderator problem that i didnt discover for a while. Ask Muir about my trials and tribulations, hes been my saviour!!

    What also worked well RE factory was 168gn PRVI Partizan HPBTs. These are not to be used on deer (dont expand) but they do group very well!

    I have copies of all of my load development, so if you want to see the results from any combination of the above, drop me a line..

    I took the COL as being to the Ogive. With the case itself being about 2", 2.29" is far too short to be the OAL from tip to base.
