That may very well be the problem.
When using heavily compressed loads, Some times the rounds wont chamber because the
powder has ballooned the case.
Instead of compressing the powder charge with the press, try using a drop tube when charging
the case. This will sometimes make a huge difference in the amount of compression or will
eliminate the need to compress the powder charge that would normally need it.
I use one that is about 3 feet long with a funnel on top and the bottom is chamfered just like
the powder measure.
