With the tight firing pin holes on the guns that Britt builds it is hard to judge pressure by the primer crater. Tighter than normal bolt lift and extractor marks on case head are sure signs that your are getting too hot. If you are jamming the bullets into the rifling all that you may have to do to get pressure down is to seat bullet a few thousands deeper. May be able to keep same powder charge.
