Just getting ready to load up some 110gr V-Max's for a prairie dog party. I opened up the Hornady book and they recommend a COL of 2.740" with a case trim length of 2.005" in the .308 Winchester using their 110gr V-max bullet. These measurements will only allow a seating depth of .202" which is far less than the bullet diameter of .308, is this considered to be OK?
I was under the impression that seating depth should be at least the diameter of the bullet being loaded if not deeper to achieve proper spacing from the lands in your particular rifle.
Thanks in advance for your opinion.
