Hi, I'm with wild bill on this one, i presume by gas marks you mean black deposits.
My buddy had the same problem with his 6.5 swede, as he increased the powder charge it disappeared.

Re: Gas marks on shoulder?

Thanks everyone for the input, I've gone back to Rem brass and haven't had any gas marks (black soot) on the shoulder. Also tried slightly hotter loads with the Win brass and accuracy fell off badly with the gas marks still showing up.

Hi yes with the black marks on the neck. Another thing you could do if you want to use up the Win Brass is anneal the cases it may not be worth it to you som eof the Win cases also have hard brass and if you anneal it it will seal at a lower pressure but like you i use Rem Brass over Win where i can.

You can also increase neck tension and/or seat the bullet deeper as well as add more powder or even use a hotter primer. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
