The post reads as if you think there is only one Case Overall Length for a 30-06. Each bullet has its own specific seating depth; whereas it will possibly have a different COL.
I don't go by a measurement, I go by where the bullet's cannelure rests in the case mouth, then I measure for reference in my reloading data.
I'll seat them like the top one, (30-06,) then measure. If the next batch of bullets are a bit off like the 30-30 case on the bottom, I'll leave it alone. But if it further off than that I'll seat it like the top and call it good.
(I load the 30-30 cartridges singly, directly into the chamber; when using pointy bullets.)
Debate isn't "uncivil" behavior. Pointing out illogical reasoning is a legitimate counter argument.
That is the problem with internet forum mods, they rarely understand what constitutes legitimate, honest and civil debate. They reward the trolls and annoy the people genuinely trying communicate.
I don't really like this place anyway, have fun with your power trip.
