338 EDGE..just making sure

I finally recieved my edge and am in the process of breaking in the barrel. On the 2nd shot I noticed slight ejector marks or ring beside the primer.
I've now shot 6 rounds and it is the same on each one. So I figured I had better crono a few loads to see where I'm at.
They shot 2590 and 2584 through a brand new crono. Cant think of the name now but was purchased from Sinclair and is blue. (duh)

So I'm using Remington brass
88gn. H1000
Fed Primer
300 gn. SMK

I measured my chamber and am about 10 thou off the lands or so.

So I'm thinking I have a bit of pressure which does not make sense because of the speed. Or the Rem brass is soft and it's just one of those things?

I'm thinking I should eventually be around 2900fps.

What do you think? Normal?

Thanks, Grin

Was the chamber clean and dry?

I scrubbed the heck out of it before shooting the rifle. I cleaned the chamber itself with q tips and solvent. I'll double check just to be sure.
