Didn't bring chrono. Buddy called me last minute to see if I wanted to go to his land to set up his camper with a little shooting after. Loaded 25.3 gr of H4895. From load data I have seen it should be somewhere around 2700. No pressure signs at all primers still had rounded edges. Could definately go higher and I might try that next time if I am able to fit more powder in the case. Load was definately compressed but I was very happy with the groups for the first load from the barrel. Good luck with getting yours to stabilize the 87's. I wouldn't think there should be any problems with a 1 in 8 stabilizing them. Maybe you just need a new powder or charge to get them to shoot.
