Re: Less Powder, More Speed?

Many thanks to all whom responded; it was sage advice. Federal Magnum 215 Match primers not only brought up my speed, but ES shrank too. I've added some new reloading equipment into the mix and consistently replay Shawn Carlock's video on handloading the Edge. Both my chronographs are on line now too and I'm shooting the first loads of Bertram Brass/M215M/H1000/Berger; less than 50 to go and the hundred I bought will be fire formed to my chamber. Now my edge averages 2852 FPS using 91.5 at 3.960 OAL (can't remember the COAL which is still changing in my search for the "sweet spot."
