    is it any different from fireforming a KHornet from normal Hornet?

    ​Shouldn't present a problem with decent brass as a starter

    I understand the length of the 17 Hornady case doesn't present a problem but have seen various contradictory reports that in reality it is wider at one point and thus is problem to chamber. This could simply be speculation/web talk hence wondering if anyone has actually done it.

    Maybe I should ask Sporting Rifle’s Mr. B Potts as I know he runs a 17 AH.

    Cheers

    I think the Hornady has a slightly shorter case length (supposedly 60thou) so might work ok.
