They are very simlar the savage shows a LITTLE pressure sign but nothing bad. I with the sewting depth difference i can get about 1 full grain more in the custom gun than the savage before im at the top.

    If the savage is showing any pressure signs you've answered your question as to velocity. It's producing more pressure (you are working the savage harder) with the load than your other rifle. Strain guages would be interesting here.

    I though of the pressure thing but when I pushed them both up to the same pressure signs there was still a huge gap. I am not really worried about it but it is just crazy I have had 6.5X284's that wouldn't barely get over 2900 until pressure was to great. I think it's a great example of every gun is different!
