    I'd back off some and stay with the rl25 and work back to pressure. I've worked with both lead core and barnes in the same basic load before and the newer ones aren't that different than lead core. I wouldn't just switch them out as they may tolerate a different max. charge. I use either 180 hdy's with rl25 or 225 hdy's with rl50 in my 30 rum and both are great.
