Re: Reccomend a primer please.

I agree with Backwoods. Try a match primer and if you haven't hit any pressure signs try upping your charge .3 gr. at a time and see if your velocity spreads begin to shrink. I have loaded 115's in 3 different rifles and all of them shot best nearing a max load. Two preferred 4350 and the third liked 4831. I used fed 210m in all of them. Hope that helps.

Your charge weight seems a little low I figured 55-55.5grns.
I'm a 270 win man and in my experience Winchester 25-06, 270, 30-06 cases hold 2-3 more grains of powder than RP. The Hybrid 100v is different. It doesn't act like where it is on the burn chart. So it has some different properties.

yes, 52 was a starting point. The poster needs more speed like 3100+ and then plug it all into the ballistic charts.
.270 Ackley improved 29 inch 1.250 dia. target barrel 7mm STW 28 inch 1.250 target barrel. I also love my .458 mag for varmints and the biggest game in the world.

I'm aware of how hybrid is I use it in 270win and 300wsm, when I sain 54grns seems a little light I mean I think with a 210M or BR2 55-55.5grns of H4831 would be closer not 55.5grns of hybrid.
