Nosler 6th edition lists 75.5 gr of H1000 as max for a 220 gr bullet.
I have been shooting the 210 HVLD in Win brass at more than the 76.5 gr you were and I'm not sure I should even say how much more.
But everyone's miliage may vary, don't ignore pressure signs, it's Mother Nature and the laws of physics speaking to you.

You need to watch velocity as you work up a new component. If the velocity increases over your old load so did pressure.

It is possible you got into some softer brass (Nosler tends toward this), but your load is pretty warm and the brass is probably telling you want you don't want to know.
