Wlp primers
They were moving at 1340fps through my crony 9.4g longshot gave about the same. 9.2 had no over pressure signs at all 9.4 had some scratches on the case and burr on the head were the extractor goes.
Does this velocity sound right to you guys? Overpressure?
I checked my chony with a known load and all was good.
That load runs quite a bit slower in my G20 (1180 fps), but it is otherwise a decent load with no indications of excessive pressure.

I wonder if you mean where the ejector goes? Scratches, nicks and dings are normal. A warm load smacks into the ejector pretty hard. The case then can bang the corner of the slide on its way out. A photo or two, or at least a bit better desription of the burrs and scratches can let us know for sure.
