Does every bullet have to go to the canteleer line here is the pic of my reload the col is the correct length via Lyman reloading manuel

Thats fine if it works thru your action and chambers OK. Those bullets likely have that crimp line in that location for use in a 30-30.

Yeah that's what I figured at it does chamber fine

As long as it will function in your rifle you should be fine. But it my experience as a rule of thumb it is best to use at least your bullet diameter (in this case .308.) for the minimum amount of bullet that is inserted into the case neck of the cartridge. This allows for the neck to get a good grip on the bullet and helps keep ignition and pressure consistent and also keeps the bullet from coming loose and making a mess

Yeah I went and got the Hornady reloading manuel and it told me 3" col which functions better than Lyman's col. Thanks for the information.

That is called a cannelure. Make sure that you have enough length in the case, and a good grip on the bullet so that an action slamming shut does not toss bullet out of case, into the leade of the chamber. THAT could give you and "obstructed bore" reaction- which will not be pretty.

There is another consideration in play here.

These bullets are engineered to expand reliably at .30-30 velocities, (2200-2400 FPS)

At .30-06 velocity (2800--2950 FPS) they may come apart on impact.

those bullets have two canulures to accomadate loading for short or long overall length based mainly on the length of the magazine ( i.e. 300mag vs 308win)
