Can anybody give me the minimum OAL/COAL for the Remington 150 gr Accutip. I'm loading .308 cal. If I seat to the canalure the OAL is below the suggested minimum that's recommended in my loading manuals. I wish the bullet companies would put this data out there. If they do I'd appreciate a link. Thanks

I don't really pay much attention to canalure placement when I working up a load for a particular rifle. If it were me.......... I would set the depth at 2.8 c.o.l. and work from there, or find out what lenth the lands are at on your rifle and set the bullet.050 off of them. EXAMPLE.....One of my loads I use is hornady sst 165gr. and the canalure is is over a full 1/16 of an inch away from the case, I get very tight groups at 250yrds with it. So I wouldn't sweat it to much......
