    7.4 grains of BlueDot under 124 grain bullet (do you use this weight?) with 1.114" OAL is 34% compressed charge, and gives 99% of the max pressure - be careful. If your bullet is lighter than 124 (and therefore, shorter), you did not compress the powder that much, and the load is still far from the max.
