The problem is that they are hanging up and not fully chambering. The place that the bullets are hanging up is about 1/32" from the mouth of the brass. I can see a perfect line around the bullet where it is getting hung just before being fully chambered. I am already at the minimum oal, so I am concerned that pushing them in another 1/32" could cause a pressure spike.
What do y'all think?
Minimum OAL according to who/what?
OAL is always bullet and gun specific, not manual specific. First and foremost your ammo must Feed-Fit-Fire. If it does not then there is no need to worry about pressure.
