@TinMan I think you hit the nail on the head. I believe Hornady intentionally makes the cases have a shorter neck such that your fireformed cases will seat a bullet further from the lands than their modified case (thus ensuring the pressure doesn't increase markedly). Nice drawing btw!

I started an excel spreadsheet so I can quickly input my shoulder length (w/ headspace gauge) and it will back calculate what the OAL should be using the oal gauge. It certainly doesn't matter at 200yrds when hunting, but I've never seen anyone (including myself) complain about added accuracy.
