...That is a good tip.

Seems like I should be looking at OAL specs too. Something I have not paid much attention to since loading only .45 LC for a revolver.

That also means that I might have less choice in which case I use. If the Magnum case is too long to feed properly, it appears my decision will be made for me. That Snake bite bullet is fairly short, almost like the proportions of the 200 grain .45 LC bullet I am using. Seems like it is unforgiving as regards seating depth.

On the other hand, a rifle which is chambered for .357 Magnum ought to feed properly when .357 ammunition is used.

Y'all can see how green I am at this by the questions I am asking.
