Flattened primer question
I just got back from the range today and I have a question. I had loaded some 200 gr. Accubonds over Re 22 and some H-1000 for ladder testing in my 300 win mag. I started at 68.0 grs for the Re 22 and went to 72.5 grs. in .3 gr steps. With the H-1000 I started at 74.0 grs and went to 79.0 grs in the same .3 gr. steps. I noticed that all the primers looked flattened (compared to unfired primers). I also had some factory stuff that I shot some of after I finished my tests, they also looked flat.
Finally to my question, as I'm new to reloading and have a strong desire to keep my head on my shoulders, is this a normal occurance or an indication of to much pressure? The bolt never got stiff during extraction and there were no extractor marks on the brass but I'd feel a little better with some guidance from the experts so what do you think?
Thanks in advance
Ignorance can be treated with education, sadly there is no cure for stupidity.
