I'd bet Hornady lists the COAL on the loading info on their website.
Otherwise if you reload anyway, you should be reloading per your guns throat. Just size a case, and just barely seat the bullet. Chamber the round, and extract. Measure the OAL, that is where the bullet contacts the rifling.
Seat the bullet deeper by about .03"; or 1/32" and you will have plenty of clearance.

As an example:
I have a 25-06 that has a VERY short throat, some reloading data would have the bullets jammed in the lands. But since I seat according to each of my rifles, it is a mute point what a book tells you.
