WARNING THIS LOAD IS WAY OVER MAX IN MY RIFLE!!!!!!!!!
I have a question for those long time rifle reloaders.
My rifle is a Remington 700 VLS 6mm Remington.
Last year I had looked up loading data from this site for the 6mm 70gr. HP.
I loaded it with VVN160 and the max load was 52.4gr.
I was using a factory crimp die on these loads and got very high pressure signs by the time I got to the 52.4 mark. On the first shot the pimer blew out and the second shot the extactor left a weld mark on the brass, I figured that was a clue so I pulled the rest of those loads.
Should I have not crimpted the brass and let the neck tension hold the bullet?
Can I crimp the lower end loads and not the upper end loads?
Where am I going wrong?
I read the thread on barrel lenghth and slow vs fast powder and thats what promped my question. Thanks in advance for your advice.
