Default RE: OAL Issue

No, headspace is not the problem. You have excess freebore in the barrel it sounds like to me. Freebore is the portion of the barrel just in front of the chamber that is not rifled. You're probably just going to have to load 'em up so they'll fit in your magazine and not worry about it. Or else load 'em up longer and shoot your rifle single shot style.
