when reloading for a bolt rifle, one is limited to the magazine( clip) for overall length, if you use the clip as intended.
since most bolt rifles, if not all, are most accurate when the bullet is just a few thousandths short of the rifling.
does anybody know of a rifle that has a magazine or clip that will let you insert rounds loaded beyond SAAMI specs
so as to get closer to the rifling without doing the single shot thing?
in my tikka 308, the difference is 0.15 from clip OAL, versus single shot all the way to the rifling..
2.81 saami spec versus 2.96 loaded to max OAL.
