Compressed powder charge with 200gr. Accubond?

I have started to work up a load with R-22 and the 200gr. Accubond. At 71 grs. of powder I get a compressed load. (I am seating to fit my magizine) Is this a problem you all have run into? The other powder I was going to try was H1000 and I have no idea how I'd get enough powder into the case? [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] Those of you using H1000 or R-22, do you have a compressed load or do you seat your bullets closer to the lands? (thus giving more powder capacity? I know a little bit of a compressed load doesn't hurt, but I don't think I could get up to 73 grains of anything less then ball powder?

Re: Compressed powder charge with 200gr. Accubond?

MANY people have liked using H4831SC with the 200 gr accubonds in the 300WM. That bullet is so long I would think H1000 would be more compressed than I would care for. Even though the accubonds were not extremely consistant in accuracy, they were still accurate using H4831SC. RL22 was worthless in MY rifle with the accubonds.
