Rifle seating depth, overall cartridge length, SAAMI spec and safety



In my Remington 700 VLS chambered for .308 Winchester, a cartridge
loaded to an OAL of 2.8250" will just touch the lands. SAAMI spec says
maximum overall length for .308 Winchester is 2.800 inches. Is a
cartridge loaded to 2.8060" OAL safe in this rifle, even though that
OAL would exceed SAAMI spec? In other words, is my chamber cut a bit
on the generous side?
