Those loads in my gun are very close to max!!! there is no way I would start with any more powder. I have over 1000 rnds down the old barrel (rock creek)and new barrel Krieger, and both
barrels shoot within 30 fps of each other and that because on is 24" and the the other is 25". The only rnds I have not chronoed are my hunting rnds, so my speeds are on cause I've also verified them out to 1000 yards.
In my gun, extractor marks would show up with sticky bolt at 75grs of Retumbo and 74.5 grs of H1000.
