I have no pressure signs and shooting a little slower than most Edges are shooting the 300gr pills.
Would you all try to gain some speed, maybe get it a little closer to 2800 fps or should I leave well enough alone and not worry about a little more speed? Probable give me a few more loading on the brass as well.
It's always in our nature to get the absolute most out of everything. I am facing the same question right now with one of my guns, and I really want to try and squeeze every last FPS out of the load... But, I think I am going to force myself to leave well enough alone, as there is no real world benefit from gaining an extra 75 fps. And there are some upsides of not having a max load. less recoil, longer life out of the barrel and brass to name a few.
But with your gun, I guess you could argue that you would gain xxx yards of extra range, and what you have sure is a long range machine. And I don't think anybody here would fault you for trying! Let us know what you decide!
