Just got my rifle back from the smith and now have a 31" barrel. I tried below min published data or RL22, my ole favorite for my 26" barrel but it is not going well. I started at 68.6 gn and worked up a ladder for some 168 SMKs. I'm getting a heavy bolt at 70.0 and failure to extract beyond that. Ohler says I'm at 3050 when the bolt starts to stick. I think I'm getting the pressure withiut the velocity. Any advice on a different powder?
168 SMKs seated off the lands, have not tinkered with depth much yet.

222 mine is just a 29'' tube, but I dont beleave 2'' could make that much differance in the pressure. I am sure you have checked but it never hurts to dubble check your scale. I am running .003 neck tenchion and a hard jam into the lands.
