I have a question on my L579 244 forester heavy barrel 1-12 twist. I believe this was made around 1960 and my grandfather gave this too me after he passed. My question is about reloading. I was using the Hornady comparator tool to measure where the bullet hits the lands of the barrel. I was using a couple of different bullets when doing this because I want to load some for target and varmints and of course big game. Well when I did this my comparator was telling me that in order to get the bullet 0.020 from the barrel lands I would then be way past the over all length of the round to fit in the magazine. This was the case using a 65gr Berger target, 75gr Sierra hollow point and a Hornady 90 ELD-x. With the older guns do you need to stay with using the overall length and then adjust? Do I have an issue with my barrel? It still shoots great so I am a little miffed by this. Something is not jiving with this for me. Any help would be much appreciated.
