I just got some 110 grain round nose bullets in 7.62, this is my first attempt in any rifle caliber. I got a good deal on the bullets and I shoot about 60 yards or less with my AK so they should work fine for me. My problem is the load books I have give the COAL using longer more pointed bullets. This doesn't place enough bullet inside the neck of the case. Could someone give me the bullet lenghth of their 110 gr bullets and I can figure COAL I need from that. These bullets are only .660 long. Thanks, Jim.

First thing I'd do would be to seat them to the same depth in the case neck as standard and see if they would feed through the action.

Most reloaders try to get one caliber or greater of bullet seating depth. Experment with the depth some. Best-o-Luck

110 grain RN's are usually for the .30 Carbine. Plus, if your AK barrel is .311", .308" bullets won't shoot well. Even at 60 yards. Too small.

You've got to seat them shorter or the bullet ogive will crash into the rifling lands when chambering, resulting in a massive pressure spike.

Also, slug your bore. If your bore diameter measured on the lands are .309" or more then you should be able to shoot them reasonably accurately.

Logic would tell you a .308 bullet isn't going to work worth beans is an oversize bore,however since you have the bullets in hand I wouldn't bother slugging the bore but just try them out. A round nose bullet will have to be loaded much shorter than any spire point (pointy) but the 110 is such a stubby little thing that isn't going to come into play for this cartridge. You should set it so the case gets a good grip on the bullet as you don't want any setback as the semi-auto action loads the gun. Might not feed,try it. You might have to turn down your expander stem (the ball or plug that gets dragged inside the case neck to expand the neck after re-sizeing.This part is also the gizmo that knocks out the old primer. If your bullets are not "grabbing" in the neck right you could get a lee factory crimp die for .308. If you turn down the expander buy yourself a spare from the mfg. of your dies so you have the correct one for standard .311 bullets.
Wow-you got yourself into a ticky job for your first reloading project. If you bail or can't get these bullets to work well save them,they are great for plinking loads in many .308 guns (30-30,308,30-06,300 savage ect) and the correct ones for the 30 carbine regular loads
