OAL for .308 in a Rem VTR using MK 168gr

Using a Hornady OAL guage w/ modified .308 case to find seating depth for a match king 168gr hpbt in my Remington 700 VTR in .308 cal. I get 2.99" when I use calipers to measure OAL. Too far out for the neck to even hold the bullet and well over 2.81 SAAMI max and Sierra manual for this bullet of 2.80
Clearly I cannot use this information to seat bullets.
I would like to hear comments on this situation and what the next move should be.
