    Montana,

    Both loads chronograph at 3100 FPS +/- 10 FPS. Keep in mind I have a 27" barrel. As I said earlier I am going to reduce these loads, they are pretty hot.

    I just stumbled across a Brian Pierce article about the WSM's. In the article he covers this same problem, I guess it's common. I will try removing a few thousandths from my die and see if the works.
