They are a set of reset points, but I do have another set you did to try,
Grasping for straws really looking for that one bad connection that would
cause an RPM 
Reliant issue and cant think of one.

I don't think it's likely, but I suppose it's possible. Do you have a
different set of points you could try?

Old trigger points need to be "reset" as the rubbing blocks wear down. It's
important to make sure that cam is free of rust and dirt, to minimize wear
and it should have a thin layer of sticky grease on it to lube the rubbing

I reset the trigger points on every distributor I rebuild. I can also just
reset trigger points rather cheaply if you send them to me. ISTR that I
reset several of Keith's a few years ago.

I've certainly seen problems that were caused by trigger points worn out of
spec, but I don't recall those problems being RPM related.
