I am done with 338 Lapua Hornady brass..........

I have noticed if I keep my Vel levels lower it works fine.......but when I get close to the full potential of the 338 Lapua the case expands inside the chamber.....every time.

No problem with my Lapua brass.

Same with Nosler and Hornady brass in any cartridge I've tried.

One shot and the primer pockets are done.....

I concur, I "had" some Hornady 25-06 brass that was total junk after one medium dose of powder with a 100gr SBT. Never again unless they introduce new line of brass.

Definitely junk! Worst .300 Weatherby brass I have ever used.Primer pockets loosened right up after 2 firings and the accuracy/consistency was terrible, a waste of primers, powder, and bullets!
