338 lapua brass issues
I continue to have extraction issues with my fired hornady brass out of my Savage 111 in 338 Lapua.
I shoot a 300 gr. Sierra MK BTHP and 225 gr. Hornady SST. Neither of the loads are hot or have a long OAL. Everything is well within spec. They chamber fine and extract fine if not fired. However, once fired, the brass tends to get stuck in the chamber and must be forced out.
I have had problems with both rounds sticking when trying to extract the bolt. However, only the 300gr had extraction issues the last time I went to the range. The 225gr did fine. That is what is weird.
I am fairly new to reloading, and didnt think to keep track of how many shots each brass has been through until now. I would estimate that they have been reloaded 5 times perhaps. I havent noticed any signs of thin brass.
I have tried to drop a bullet into the case mouth of the fired brass before resizing. A few allow the bullet in, but most of them are too tight. The outside diameter seems consistent on them, but the inside must be too thick in some.
From what I have read on the internet, it seems that I need to ream the inside of the case neck.
Is this usually required on fired 338 lapua brass? I havent read much about doing this anywhere?
Is Hornady brass my problem, or does Lapua brass require this as well?
Any advice would be appreciated.
