    It could be alot of thing. Neck tention can cause some problems, but usually only with custom chambers and over bore rounds. If you are loading hot it can occure with factory chambers and rounds though.

    Not really a hot load thought the heat of the barrel and the weather mite play a part

    Any temp sensitive powder can up the pressure if they sit in a hot chamber on a
    hot day.
