    how ever all I can say is @Kiwi Greg is since finally fitting the T3 brake on my 223 Ar15 well recoil is less, follow up shots are quicker and more accurate. definitely maybe a bit more louder for the poor bastards who wish to stand to the side of me but I don't care it is faster easier and quicker to lay rounds down range

    one thing I should try I guess is make a dummy round and chamber it and see if the projectile is jammed in the lands

    Try some factory as a few have said and see if the problem persists factory is pretty hot for pressure anyway. Measure coal of your reloads against the factory stuff then freebore drop a projectile in the chamber and tap lighly onto the lands measure distance from the muzzle end. Repeat with a dummy round the difference is the bullet jump to the rifling. It might not help but it cant hurt to know.
