I don't have a real good way to measure the exact length only guessing by inserting a dummy round left long and Sharpie-ing the bullet to look for engagement marks. (I oft wonder how someone can say they seat their bullets .XXX" off the lands when I can never find bullets that are that consistent)

I can however try to give you a measurement of the total available space in the mag once I get up and moving this morning. Both calipers are in the shop 40 yds away and I'm still working one my first cup of coffee.

I hope you enjoy your 527 as much as I do mine. Mine is a 2004 vintage and still makes me smile.
Thanks for the help. I have a hornady chamber length gauge and 222 case to fit it for another 222 that I can measure once rifle is here. But the magazine length will help greatly and give me a good idea of where to start. May I ask what you have found your 527 likes in regards to powder and bullets? With you would rather not post your loads here you are welcome to message me.

Thanks
