Rifle Cartridge Overall Length An important part of fine-tuning a rifle load is finding the bullet seating depth that results in the best accuracy. Much like determining the optimum charge weight, finding the best seating depth is done through trial and error testing.
Unlike the optimum charge weight - which is a powder charge weight that will shoot well out of a variety of different rifles - the correct bullet seating depth is very rifle-specific.
More than anything else, the cartridge overall length is what will 'personalize' a particular load for a particular rifle. However, unlike the charge weight information, not all of the cartridge overall length or COAL information can be found in reloading manuals.
Staying at or above this minimum will not cause an over-pressure condition in most cases - read the warnings below.
Going shorter than the minimum length will seat the bullet deeper into the case, effectively decreasing the case volume and increasing the pressure.
This practice is therefore not recommended. Since the minimum length for your testing will be the minimum C. The bullet must be seated far enough into the neck to provide sufficient hold.
The cartridge should fit into the rifle's magazine if it has one Factor 3: The bullet should be seated far enough into the case so that it does not contact the rifling lands in the barrel when the round is chambered. Let's take these one-at-a-time: A good rule for most applications is that a bullet will be sufficiently held in the case if it is seated so that at least one caliber's depth of the full diameter portion of the bullet is seated into the case neck.
For example, if you were loading a. If your rifle has an internal or external magazine, and you plan on using it to feed cartridges into your rifle, the cartridges must be short enough to fit into it.
You do have the option to load longer than magazine length. In fact, many of the heavier 'very-low-drag' VLD bullets for rifles like the AR are too long to be loaded to magazine length. However, cartridges loaded with these bullets or any cartridges longer than magazine length must be single-loaded.
Factor 3 is the tricky one. You can use simple measuring tools to ensure that the bullet is seated to at least one caliber depth, and that the cartridge will fit into the magazine. However, additional tests are required to measure the distance to the lands for a particular rifle and bullet.
You need to measure the maximum cartridge overall length that will fit into your rifle chamber with the exact bullet you will be loading.
Old-timers and those that are more frugal do this by loading a series of dummy cartridges to various lengths, 'smoking' the bullets with a candle flame to coat them with sootchambering the dummy cartridges in the rifle, then removing them and looking for marks from the rifling on the bullets.
The maximum COAL will be the longest cartridge without marks on the bullet. This process is time-consuming, wasteful, and not as accurate as a method that will make it easy for you to perform the test multiple times. An easier way requires you to get three items: A cartridge overall length gauge such as the one made by Hornadya specially modified case for the caliber you will be loading, and a bullet comparator.
OAL Gauges The overall length gauge is a hollow tube about 8" long with a threaded end. Inside the tube is a thin pushrod longer than the tube that can be locked into place with a thumbscrew. The overall length gauge is used in conjunction with a specially modified case in your caliber.
This modified case has a large threaded hole in place of the primer pocket which allows the case to be fitted onto the threaded end of the overall length gauge. Modified case To use the gauge, affix the modified case onto the threaded end, slide the pushrod up into the case so that the end of the pushrod is near the middle of the case's shoulder, and place the bullet you will be loading into the case neck.
At this point, the test bullet will be 'seated' much deeper than normal. The case is sized so that the bullet is a slip-fit in the neck. While holding the case firmly in the chamber, use the pushrod to shove the bullet into the barrel until it stops, then tighten the thumbscrew.
Inserting the OAL gauge with modified case and bullet into the chamber If you cannot get easy straight line access to your chamber such as with a lever guna curved version of the OAL gauge is available that can be inserted through the ejection port of the rifle.
This is shown in the bottom of Figure 1 above. Remove the gauge from the chamber. If the bullet does not come out with it, poke the bullet out of the barrel with a cleaning rod, and re-insert it into the modified case.
The pushrod will stop the bullet and your resulting COAL will be where the bullet hit the lands.This section includes twelve case studies that provide a snapshot of communities that have led the U.S. in producing oil, gas, coal, gold, iron, or copper over the last decade.

In a recent letter to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, Troutman Sanders attorney Peter Glaser argues that “EPA far understated the effects of the Clean Power Plan (CPP) by exaggerating the amount of coal generation that will retire even without the rule.” Ironically, the smoking gun evidence is in the agency’s updated modeling, which now .
For this case the variance reflects the level of some analyte, ash percent in coal will be our primary example, as it varies from one composite to another as the increment sampling operation is replicated on a given lot or a collection of lots of some type.
The portfolio theory based optimization model for coal purchasing portfolio represented a quadratic programming problem.
The aim was to determine optimal coal acquisition from different methods and multiple sources, subject to quality and environmental restrictions, so as to satisfy demand at a minimum purchasing cost 3 after adjusting price risk.
