Ok, well I had a fantastic day at the range on Saturday and managed to find a load that was pretty much hole in hole for my 30-06
This was the hottest load of the day but was showing no pressure signs, primers weren't flattened and bolt was easy to operate, so I left the range a happy man.
Anyways I got my friend to plot the info. in Quickload and he said it's on the hotter side so I just wanted to run it by the more knowledgeable on here just to calm my nerves that this is a safe load.
Full length resized
200 grain Lapua Mega
cci 200 LR primer
Barrel length 56cm
I know it's a lot higher than the min. & max in the VV reloading manual but I found in the Richard Lee, Modern Reloading 2nd Edt. that with 200 grain VVN160 was a min. of 52.1 and max 57.6 grains.
So, what do you guys think, am I just being paranoid as there was no signs of high pressure or do I need to drop down a little?
Any advice to calm my nerves would be appreciated
