Bolt seems fine after firing bolt lifts but pulls over brass , I have had 3 different lots of hornady factory 1-2 from each box stuck. New lapua brass 1 got stuck after reloding case 3 times others were fine using h 1000 and re 25 ,re22

Re: Savage 11/111 338 lapua case sticking problems

I too have a New Savage 110 HS precision and the Hornady cases I loaded for some breakin got stuck after firing as well. But the factory Fed Premium with Lapua brass did not. The bolt was not sticking on lift but had to tapped back to break loose..No signs of any overpressure. I have been reading on here about the soft Hornady brass.. any thoughts or advice?

I just picked up 338 110 BA.

Hornady factory loads stick about 30% or greater amount of the time.

Combination of the Chamber and soft Hornady Brass.
