Re: Pressure Signs Please Help

I have ran into this with a 6mm-284 of mine with a Hart barrel. I tried everything under the sun and finally just dropped the charge back 1 grain and it went away. I had tight primer pockets minimum case expansion and still had the problem. 3000fps with a 180 Berger is getting up there out of a 24inch pipe. I would drop it back a half grain and shoot it over the chrony and then drop it another 1/2 grain and shoot it again. I would bet you might lose 20fps to 40fps total which is another sign you are peaking with your rifle and load. I would not worry with that High BC bullet you are using even giving up 100fps is not going to make a difference.
Fast, Flat, and Accurate
