Hi Steven, Thanks for your response. Yes, I suppose a load type would have helped. My error. These loads are 70 gr. Swiss FFg, 500 gr Govt. bullet, Winchester LRM primers, and flash holes enlarged to .096, all as per Wolf's book. I have been keeping my O.A.L to 2.79-2.80". Of course, the powder charge is compressed to bullet seating depth. This is the first time I have encountered this in the 18 years I have been loading this same charge. I have a few bullets left, so I think I will try using brand new brass and see what happens. Some of this brass I have is 18 years old. What do you think? Thanks Steve. Regards, Ken
