Yes I still believe that is your issue. Problem area is around the ogive of the bullet. I had this problem with lyman #2 alloy as the harder alloy does not shrink as much as a 20, or 30-1 does. Adding to that the unknown if the round was seated and compressed in one shot as already discussed. Use the lyman 457125 bullet or mould if you want to cast 500 grainers, drop tube anywhere from 63 to 65 grains, compress and see what happenes, should be eaiser on the shoulder.
