300 wm ??

Ok so I got some h1000 and am in the process of load development. I notice that 75 to 77 grns are compressed loads. I followed the hogdon Manuel am I safe? Has anyone else had this problem??

    What brass and bullet ? I have loaded 77 gr of H-1000 in WW, RP, and Lapua brass with 210 Bergers. Never compressed. But sneak up on it. I was losding for a sendero 26" rifle a while back and 77 was hot. Ended up at 74.6 gr. with a 210 and a CCI 250.

    Now my sons Broughton 28" barrel will shot 77 gr and a 210 and never show any sign of pressure.

    Darrin, I would check your scales if you are compressing powder. Do you have a bullet around 80 gr you could weigh?

    Or are you seating the bullets deep?

    I played with H1000 and the 200 gr AB for a bit during load testing. I don't remember exactly how many grains I worked up to, but I do remember that there was a good deal of powder crunching when seating the bullet. I didn't stick with it very long as I was getting better velocity and accuracy with Re 22 without the compressed load.
