DOH! Accidentally did it with 308win with 175gr SMKs & 42.7gr of H4895. Signs of pressure (flattened and puckered primers, tight extraction) Velocity went from 2660 to 2720. Glad it was in a strong bolt gun.

I worked up some loads with my 3006. 200gr. Smk imr4350 fed 215s I started low and worked all the way up to sierras max published load and found no pressure signs so I took it to 54 grns. No pressure at 2720fps and half moa.
