Just had 2 cases with split necks for the 1st time. These are Hornady cases and have only been fired 3 times (reloaded 2 x). Each time after resizing I have had to trim the case's to length.
When the cartridge is fired and the necks splits is this likely to have an effect on accuracy ???
I ask as, I fired 4 shots last night. 1 of which hit, but I thought, as I pulled the trigger I was to the left. 1 missed but thought I was bang on, both shots off sticks. Set target up and was well to the right on one from prone position. I do not know which of the cases split on what shot.
Should I discard all the Hornady cases and move onto my next make of cases ???? (privy, norma or fiocchi )
I know I need to check my zero as the scope could be out but wondered if split neck could cause such a shift.
