    I've used W748 in .223, .30-30, .308 and 8x57mm. It worked quite well when used with charge weights within 10% of maximum for the appropriate bullet weights, but I had no opportunity nor interest in...

    Things to try at the loading bench are:
    1.) Increase the charge weight slightly (data allowing).
    2.) Switch to a heavier projectile (230 gr. LRN or 250 gr. RNFP), keeping charge weights as is. ...

    I couldn't agree more. Empty chambers just give your aggressor a "head start". The 130 gr. weight also seems suspect to me. I guess it COULD be some weird heavy-clad FMJ, designed to achieve maximal...
