Eldm problems

Recommended Posts


I tried working a load up for my FLCP-SR for 178 eldm with 4064 and made them to the same size as my other rounds and they won't chamber without considerable force. Anyone else experience that with a stock savage barrel and the eldm bullets. 
I've resized some brass a fired case down farther than my previous attempt, seated a bullet a little deeper than my 168 BT and the dummy round chambered fine. So I dropped 41.5 grains heard nor felt any crunch of powder. Round wouldn't chamber. I'm completely confused

 Perhaps the ogive is further out. Blacken the bullet with a permanent marker and carefully insert it in the chamber and see if it’s hitting on the lands.
