Re: Weatherby cartridge O.A.L.
Roy Weatherby built his rifles and reputation around speed and power. One of the things he did to accomplish this (safely) was to design his cartridges with extremely long throats. That said, finding the Max OAL where a particular bullet contacts the lands and still remains in the case may be a tall order.
Finding the proper OAL is kinda like finding the best powder/bullet combo, it's all about trial and error. Me, I would start with the bullet seated to Mag length (make sure you are not jammed into the lands) and start testing loads and decreasing OAL in .010-.015 increments.
