Re: New rifle and problem
Might have to have your smith polish the chamber...
Also, 74gr of 7828 SSC doesn't sound like a medium load for a 160gr bullet...But Inalso don't load Speer bullets.
You sound like you have excess pressure, and if you have flattened primers you might wanna back the load way down and work your way up till you get slight pressure signs like sticky bolt or flattened primers.
Also, not every rifle will have the same max loads. Max load for one rifle might be a medium load for another.
