43 grains of Varget under a 150 Hornady makes a very accurate round for my No5.
I got repeated hits on a milk jug sized rock at 200 yards using the battle sights,my eyes are not getting any younger so I think I did ok.

Is the powder compressed or is there enough room in the case?

43gns of Varget would be a fairly stiff load . Try dropping it back to 40 0r even 40.8 & see how it goes. Varget is imported from ADI here in Australia where it is marketed as AR2208 & I've had great results useing 40.8 gns . in my #4
