Re: Pressure Signs Please Help

I have no idea if this will help, but it might. Try annealing a few of the cases that were sticking and see if that helps. You could possibly have brass that is work hardened and not springing back from the chamber after firing.

Only 3 firings is a sign of HIGH pressure. Only anneal the neck shoulder, not below. I don;t think anealing or lack of is your problem

Re: Pressure Signs Please Help

I was looking more at the case and bolt lift for pressure signs. I looked at the bolt face after shooting one of the compressed loads the other day and noticed a small brass ring. I cleaned the brass ring off the bolt face and fired another round. Same result. I am leaning more towards high pressure as the culprit. I appreciate all the help. As much as I hate to do it it looks like I'm going to have to tone it down and live with the lower MV.

You are definately experiencing excess pressure signs. 8 to 10 loadings is good IMHO

I would check to make sure your lugs and mating surfaces are clean and put a little oil on them.

Re: Pressure Signs Please Help

Measure just above the case head recess (in the same location every time.. mark with a sharpie),
if you notice ANY growth in the diameter,
you are over pressure. As in .0001 plus.

This is the most pressure resistant area of a cartridge and if it starts to increase.. BEWARE.
