Reloading a 243wssm with Varget powder. Seems to be excessive black soot on the case neck after firing. There is also a tiny amt that is at the side of the case. I think I read somewhere that this was low pressure and the neck was not sealing against the chamber allowing the soot to come out more than normal. Gun ok to fie? Any ideas for the excessive soot? Thanks.
