.5 grain up and down from 53. Bergers I've loaded respond a lot to seating depth. I would find the best group by charge then play with depth. I sent you an email about adjusting seating depth using bergers.

Next step? I'd stop right there. For hunting your getting great great accuracy. If you're gonna do some bench rest competition you may want to practice a bit more and maybe week the load...

Me thinks getting a blow out in the primer at that location with that load is a fault of the primer.

Just say'n.

What primers are you using? I've never needed to use mag primers in anything but my 338 edge. I'd also look for some H4831 or imr7828 ( I use it with 150's and 130's and will be trying it with the 140's). Or the imr 4350 powder, which I have seen members here use very accurately. Might also want to send out a fired case to a gunsmith or machinist to tap it for the hornady set up. You'll get a more accurate reading with a fired case for your coal.
