Re: Will virgin brass cause more pressure?
I had a lot of head space on my 270 WSM and with new brass I had to fire form before max load or it would lock the bolt, the pressure was the same but the case couldn't get blown out to the side walls and get any traction before the case was shooting back and slamming into the bolt face.
