So I loaded my reloads 1.248-1.252 & no more issues. Then I tested my loads 1.244-1.247 & the FTF's started again. Then I went back to my longer OAL & flawless. Finally back to my shorter OAL & FTF's again.

BTW: I tested American Eagle 1.248-1.252 & Remington 1.252-1.254 & both factory rounds were flawless.

I'm loading now to +/- 1.252.
Thanks for the info. I'm still experimenting with different OAL's, and will try your suggestion.
