Default Accubond in 300 WBY?

Anybody loading the 180 AB for a 300 WBY? If so, what have you found to work well? I was attempting to load with 84gr of IMR 7828, but the bullet needs to seat so deep into the casing because of the polymer tip, that I ended up crushing the casing when seating the bullet. The Nosler Partition and the Hornady Spire Point both load fine with the same powder load.

Compared to thestandard bullets, I need to seat the AB deeper so that the overal bullet length will fit into the gun magazine! I would imagine this same problem would exist with any tipped bullet like the ballistic, etc.

I used to have the same problem trying to load the Scirocco bullets in my Browning Abolt in 7mm RM. My only solution was to change bullets as loading them as deep as required to fit in the magazine resulted in poor accuracy.

Only other option would be to see if there is any material in your stock/magazine that can be removed by a gunsmith to allow the bullets to be seated with larger OAL.
