I finished loading my first trial of reloads for 30-06 tonight, and ran into an issue I wanted to ask the forum here. Brass is once fired HXP. Bullets are Hornady #3031 150 gr soft point Primers are CCI Large Rifle Powder is 48gr of Varget I measured all brass, and all was less than the max case length of 2.494". Some was close to that length, but all was less than max case length (between 2.48 and 2.49"). I seated the rounds to 3.21" COAL, and did not crimp. I am using Redding dies. All rounds were full length and neck sized. My issue is this... Load them into an enbloc clip and they all load and chamber and eject perfectly fine in my Garand (doing hand cycles). When I load them into the magazine of my Tikka T3 rifle, the bolt will not close on the rounds. At least, there is a lot of resistance. I have not tried forcing it. This rifle will chamber HXP, but it does take more power in closing the bolt than normal commercial rounds. I marked up a bullet with a marker and tried again, and there were NO marks on the actual bullet. Which tells me, the issue is with the with the brass??? Should I crimp? Should I trim it further back? What do you all think? Should I trim the brass back? Crimp? Put some elbow grease behind closing the bolt on my Tikka? Any advice would be appreciated.
