Thanks for the reply.
It's for a 6.5 Swede. My load is right at the starting level according to the Hodgdon recommendation, but this is way below starting in the Lyman manual (?). I guess what I'll do is go to a moderate level by Hodgdon (38 grains H380 w/140gr bullet) and try the regular Federal primers. I won't go to magnum unles some of the more experienced loaders here think it's a good idea. By the way, the MAX load recommended by Hodgdon is below starting in the Lyman manual.
