The barrel lenght is 16" carbine. So far I have not had to adjust the gasblock on any of the rounds I've put through it. The 32.0 grain loads started showing some primer flattenning, but not extreme. The 32.5 grain cases started showing some bolt swipes and more primer flattening. I didn't bother to shoot the 33.0 grain loads because I felt I was probably past the max load with the 32.5 grain loads. Yeah, I agree, the loads above 32 grains are definitely hot, so my next test loads will be between 30.0 to 31.0 grains in .2 grain incriments.
