Good bet, seeing as how I have my rifle set up as a single shot  8).  I also removed the ejector when I swapped it from .223 to 6.5 CM, I hate chasing brass when I'm sitting at a bench.  Only time it's a problem is when I unload a live round, they tend to be longer than the ejection port.  Next time I take my bolt apart, I'll probably shorten the rear baffle extension to allow for that.  Later.

Heres a link to nosler load data for a 130 gr. Pill.. it doesnt show rl19 but it does show rl 15 and rl 17.. if you notice on the max charge of rl17 it gives a 98% case fill.. so i kinda doubt that you can fill the case too much with rl19.. how full was the case on your 45.4 charge.. nice shooting by the way..
I have 2 chronographs you can borrow if needed.  Old school shoot though and a magnetospeed.  East Mesa, Val Vista and University. 
A very gracious offer.  Thank you so much, but I am heading back to our Wisconsin home in less than two weeks, so I think this will wait till I return in the Fall.  I can get back to load development on my MPA 6.5 PRC.  I am getting closer to buying a Labradar unit as it is easier to utilize at a busy range like Rio Solado.  Trying to set up my Oehler 35P at a quiet range in NW WI is no issue, but here it is much more challenging.  Maybe time for an upgrade along with an annealing setup.  My Winter home is in Peralta Trail, so maybe I can buy you an adult beverage when I return in the Fall.  I think my return may be a permanent one.  Really love my lake place in WI, but Winter is soooooo much better here.  Besides, I can motorcycle year round here.

Your 44.2 grain load or the 44.8 grain load seem to be the ones to shoot more. Since the velocity and bullet weight are high enough for deer, the choice of what rifle to take can be the toughest part (aside from finding the deer).
The primers all look good enough to use those loads if you want to.

There should also be a baffle inside the powder reservoir..
i found a little info on the baffle including a "flat pattern" template for creating my own. Suggestions were made to use soda can metal (thin) and i gave it a try. As luck would have it i broke my silver solder joint and jury rigged a fine thread nut to be welded to the die piece. My left hand made my welding helmet manipulation help cause me to f it up when i went to arc weld it this am. Now im back in business because a pipe size reducer bushing found at the local hws is similar in thread size to the lyman part 7/8-14 to 7/8-11  5/8 -24 tp 5/8-18 hoping to get back out there after supper & get some testing/ calibration done.
