Sorry for the long winded post but I’m really really curious. So I’ve tried a couple different powders and a couple different bullets in my fierce 300 prc. I can shoot the factory 225s half inch all day. But I cannot find a solid load with handloads. Granted I’m new to reloading so it very well could be something I’m doing, I’m just hoping to check this off the list of possibilities. The first picture is what the neck looks like after firing every case on virgin, 1x, and 2x adg brass. I’m noticing that the soot on the outside of the neck is not consistent or uniform. Sometimes it goes down all the way to the neck shoulder junction and sometimes it does not. And it’s spotty going around the neck. The 2nd picture is of factory hornady 225 eldm ammo. The soot on the neck looks more uniform and it’s consistent like that on every fired case. Any ideas what’s going on or if this is possibly a reason I’m not finding any accuracy with handloads?
