    Harter66 replied to a thread too much neck? in Leverguns
    As a long shot , there appears to not be a basic case for the 30-30 family , get a few 38-55 cases or start with 32 WS . See if you can grow the brass some to get it to fill up the chamber . The 38-55 only starts out .005 longer than the 30-30 ....

    I might be off a little but that looks like a pound cast and I would say that the brass is a little short or the neck cut long . I have a couple of Colts chambers that are 1.315 vs 1.285 SAMMI drawing . Your brass there isn't Hornady...

    I ran and launched 50 45-70 from hot Colts level up to real 45-70-405s . It didn't do anything for the source of the stress but it did make it go away for a few hours .
