    Without being able to check capacities on your cases and such other QL setup steps, this is what I got:

    Pressure: 61001 psi
    Velocity: 2838

    So, yes you are over SAAMI max pressure levels, according to QL.

    Your brass, primers, bolt lift, etc would be a better indication.

    Depending on many variables, it's possible to be unsafe below the published and QL Max. And, it's possible to be safe over the published and QL Max.

    cheers thanks for your help much appreciated
    no issues with pressure bolt lift is normal primers and brass all ok i took it up to 43 grains and still had no issues but 42.5 produced best accuracy so im assuming this is a safe load in my rifle.
