Great idea, thanks. I did that twice and it came out to 3.466" both times. I'll assume that's the right number since its shorter and it just seems like it would be a more reliable measurement. The round fell back out of the chamber with out any pressure on the cleaning rod (literally just about touching it) so I have no problem trusting the number.
Brian, is there a seating depth you would recommend I start with? I'm not at all set on .020" off, that's just what I've read. I haven't even checked to see if that will fit in my internal mag. I could just as easily drop that to a COAL of 3.4" just to stay on the safe side. That would still be significantly closer than the commercial ammo I'm shooting.
The Jeep has been a lot of fun, but time to come back to my first hobby.. shooting.
