For Spitzer bullets that might lead to crimping past the ogive.

I usually follow the OAL suggested in the loading data for my regular loads.

The one in the ad looks nice to me. That is why I bought one. It shoots fairly well also. Once, I worked through the sight situation.

Unfortunately you can not do this with spire point bullets when loaded in 30-30. If you did follow OAL for say a typical FP 150 grain bullet, but were using a spire point the ogive would be seated well into the neck of the case. IF being used for SS loads in a lever action rifle the bullet seating depth will have to be determined by taking a bullet and putting it into an unsized case neck, pushing it into the chamber until it stops, carefully removing it then measuring it and then seating it a thou or two deeper.
If a .30 cal spire point bullet is being used that has a cannelure it can be seated conventionally at the cannelure and chamber OK. It's the excessive length of the point is what does not allow them to chamber from a tube magazine.
I suspect IF Henry did make a Long Ranger in 30-30 it would no doubt be designed to accept rounds loaded with spire point bullets as the BLR and the few bolt action 30-30s do.

Did/Does Browning make a 30-30 BLR?
The Savage 340 in 30-30 I reloaded for would not cycle anything longer than my Marlin 336 would cycle. Just under 2.60 inches.

I don't think so - I was more referencing how some box mag fed 30-30s WILL accept rounds with spire points.
I am surprised your 340 will only accept standard length rounds.
