    It is a truly meaninglessness question.


    I asked if anyone remembered the referenced test. No more no less. Al gave me an answer. Probably lost in the archives..

    Well, obviously there was a reason for asking other than rhetorical.

    True; which is why I later suggested a test using a case with the shoulder set back or save the trouble and just use a .308 case in a .30-06 chamber.

    The whole premise is more trouble than it's worth. As long as the primer is soft enough to accept an indentation, the bullet won't seat deeper anyway.

    Of course if it COULD do it then that would be the correct maximum distance.

    I withdraw my observation that there's no such thing as a dumb question.

    No question is totally useless; it can always be used as a horrible example.
