I seat my Lee cast trunicated cone bullets down to where the shoulder is just at the case mouth....any further out than that I i run into problems with the bullet contacting the rifling and it won't chamber 100% of the time.

I can get you the oal if you want it. I never bothered to measure the oal...I just kept seating the bullet deeper in small increments until it would drop completely into the chamber(barrel out of gun).
