Not quit following yall here. A tight chamber is a good thing, there's less room for expansion and keeps things more consistent. The chamber shouldn't have anything to do with how warm a load shoots or not. Get new brass and fireform it to your new chamber while you are breaking your barrel in and developing loads. Are you able to seat your bullets out to the same length or is the throat on this barrel shorter than the other, if so, this is why you might be seeing pressure. No reason you shouldn't be getting 3150 with a full case of H-1000, RL25, or Retumbo.
