Re: Hornady brass jamming

Hornaday brass has thick necks and is known to have extraction issues in rifles with tight chamber such as Savages. Try neck turning.

"Let glorious acts more glorious acts inspire,
And catch from breast to breast the noble fire!
On valour's side the odds of combat lie,
The brave live glorious, or lamented die;" - Iliad, Book V

Re: Hornady brass jamming

...and I thought a 'thick neck' was revelant to sleep apena as described by the Federal DOT.

Just avoid the Hornady brass entirely. Cheaper isn't always better. usually isn't.
