Help with savage predator

Anyone know what's causing this on my reloads?? The back marker is to show that ring around the bullet. It's in a comparator to show where the ogive is. It's loades at 2.180 which seems way to low for a col http://

Re: Help with savage predator

Is it after chambering a round or seating?Could be a crud ring in the bore or chamber area.Does a factory round chamber without the ring?Barrel nut tight on the gun?

Re: Help with savage predator

Savage tend to have long throats. So the ring or cannelure of the bullet will be showing above the top of the case mouth.
How is your 2.180 measured? Is that from the base of the case to the top of the bullet or to the ogive of the bullet?

Ogive measurements are always shorter than the published COL. With longer bullets make certain that they will feed from the magazine. Many times it is the magazine length that will dictate the COL of the round.

after chambering is when I get the ring. Factory ammo does not get the ring.

that's not the cannelure,looks like one. But that's how the bullet comes out AFTER chambering.
Measuring from tip of bullet to bottom of case is how I measu the round.

Next question. Did you notice it from new or did it show up as the round count increased?
