I wouldn’t be a bit afraid to try the 230 OTM’s. Not every rifle loves 215’s (wish they did, it’s a great bullet) but the 230 otm seems like it’s a pretty easy going bullet if the 215’s won’t shoot. At 1000 yards in my 300 prc the 215 is .5 mil flatter then the 230 and 60 FPS more impact velocity. Not a huge difference IMO. That’s starting 110 FPS faster at the muzzle with the 215.

ADG brass. I’ve tried 215M and CCI 250. CCI was the best.

I have changed seating depth. Once I found my node on the latter test I then tried several seating depths
Try Fed 215s....leave out the M....just incase...I didn't have good results with 215 match...might make a big difference! Cheap to try!

My 30 Nosler didn't like the 200s, 215s, or the 230s with RL26 and Bertram Brass. I tried Hornady 225 elds and the gun loved them. My load is 76.5gr of RL 26 with Fed 215s going 2920 fps.

My load for my 30N is 210 vld, over 78.8 gr of H1000, CCI 250 and Nosler brass. Barrel is 26” carbon proof, 1-9.4 twist. Shoots lights out with single digit SD/ES.

Pic below is a 5 shoot group with the above load.
