Anyone had short brass from Hornady???
Ive discovered the Hornady .45-70 brass is short...too short to crimp correctly.....It was explained to me that the shortend case was to allow for the 325 gr flex tip bullet.....I dunno..
Today I ran across some Hornady .45C that was much shorter than any of my 'diverse' bag of .45C brass...I noticed it when the crimp wasnt in the crimping groove, so I culled the bullets and sorted my empties..I hate to chunk once fired brass, but if its too short to crimp right, it doesn't do me any good to keep it...Fortunately only 6 of 400+ were Hornady..
The three cases in the middle are Hornady while the ones on the ends are WW or RP...I forget, but all once fired...
