Sounds to me like you are going to blow something or someone up if you don't back down a good bit.
Just because it is a weatherby it doesn't get the right to be loaded so high a pressure to require beating the bolt open.
If it's been re-barreled, it probably doesn't have the weatherby free-bore anymore
, and book loads will be over pressure about 1/2 way up the ladder, if not earlier. Start your loads at 15% down from where you are(not book max, as that is obviously way to hot for that chamber) and work up from there. Watch your trim length and keep the bullet off the rifling at least .050" to start with.
