    My old model 70 Winchester (circa 1958) shoots the Lyman #375449 with #2 quenched alloy just fine at the 2000 fps range +/-. With that size and weight boolet and used at sensible ranges, why is there a need for more vel.?Robert

    The flip side would be to get the Lee 125 rnfp and shoot it in both.

    Try fitting the offending round base first into the headspace gage. That will help id where the problem is and how to fix it. I learned that doing 5.56 mil brass that apparently had been fired in a very generous chamber.
