I found a place in Canada I can buy some Hornady 180gr  Round Nose. These bullets have always appealed to me, just looking blunt and forceful. I like carrying my No5 when hunting bush country (180 gr Sierra ProHunter). I pretty much load all my bullets to an OAL of 3.05". I used to be 2.98'ish but info on this site convinced me to load longer. Anyways, my question is, is 3.05" OAL ok for RN bullets? Thanks!

Lyman  says an OAL of 2.945"
Hornady says 2.945" as well
Norma says 2.933" with a Hornady RN

If you ever decide to try the 215grn Woodleigh rounds, Norma gives an OAL of  3.031"
