well i thought my gunsmith was pretty good until i showed him the rounds. i had the gun with me in its case too. but he just said it was a hot round. he did say there was some thing in the action (cant remember what he called it) that can catch and not help feeding. he said the random round he picked up did show evidence of it. but he wasnt worried.
(the scuff mark was just above the magnum belt, running length ways. but only about 3 or 4 mm long)
but he never once mentioned head space.
i wonder.. would i expect the same problem with a more mild hornady round/case.... as in would it still be a bit tight.
i must say, i can definatly feel its a bit tight, but it doesnt really bother me much. its just the point that its like that. im kind of used to it.
