I'm after some advice regarding chambering home loads? I reload for my Steyr Pro Hunter .223. This weapon is in new condition.
I'm having difficulties with some rounds chambering incorrectly, could this be C.O.A.L?
The bolt slides forward and picks up the round with no issues at all, as some of the rounds enter the chamber, some get jammed! I have inspected the bolt, chamber and magazine and there seems to be no damage. I have followed my reloading manuals to the letter and when looking at the data, i can only guess that the cartridge overall length could be the fault.
The bullet heads i'm using are Speer soft points, 55 grain, c.o.a.l 2.175", case trim length 1.750"
The other bullet head i'm using is the Hornady V max 50 grain, c.o.a.l 2.200", case trim length 1.750"
The cocking action of the weapon is controlled and smooth each time as i did question if it was my individual actions causing the jams.
Please advise if you have seen this issue before?
