J. Station 4 - How to determine the proper seating depth:
Before installing and adjusting the seating die you'll need to know how to determine the proper seating depth. How far the bullet is seated into the case will determine the overall length (OAL). Several factors go into determining the proper OAL - such as, the maximum recommended OAL, listed in the reloading manual, and the type of bullet being loaded. The type of bullet can determine the OAL by one of two ways. If the bullet has what is called a cannelure, FIG 113, this will determine the proper OAL.
