More .257 Weatherby help needed.

Went to the range Saturday with high hopes of my loads consisting of IMR 7828 and Barnes 100 grain TSX's showing me good things out of my Mark V.

Shot loads in half grain increments from 71 - 74 grains. Best group I got was with 74 grains, but it was over an inch. Extractor mark was starting to show as well...so I have two more suitable powders on hand to try. Which one would you try first with the above bullet?

    Which primers and what is your OAL? On this load in the 257wby I have had god luck with CCI-250 primers. What was your top velocity when you backed off?

    I'm shooting 73.5 grains of RL22 with federal 215m primers, bought weatherby brass, 100 tsx, with an oal of 3.425", all going into a 1/2 inch hole. My gun is a mkv ultralightweight with 26" barrel.
