    Hi , The maximum COL is stated as 2,650" , you are under this measurement so they should feed ok .
    If I were you I would develop a new load to this COL , and just come up through your powder charge again watching for pressure signs .
    It is not normally recommended to use handloads across different rifle's ,as then have been made to suit a certain set of tolerance's and you could find yourself over pressure .

    Cheers

    I might be wrong in saying but no fear in high pressures as i always load to minimum powder charge, as relatively new to reloading,
