Savage 11/111 338 lapua case sticking problems

New savage having problems with hornady factory ammo sticking in chamber.Savage took gun back and could not find any problem but did polish chamber have not had any problems with lapua brass i have reloaded except once before chamber was polished but hornady brass is still getting stuck.Savage told me to only use black hills ammo whats up with this. hornady has been very helpful in trying to help with this problem any other thoughts .This gun shoots great . But no real answer as to why cases keep getting stuck. ANY HELP WOULD BE GREAT

the hornady brass is too soft and expands to your chamber too tightly. i had the same problem with my savage 110 fcp hs in 338 Lapua then i reloaded some lapua brass and now everything is fine.

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

is bolt lift sticky at all? that would be a sign of over pressure and that could cause the brass to get stuck. are you using factory ammo?
