I've had .45 Colt, .454 Casull and .460 brass (factory loads) from Hornady split.

I had the same experience with the Hornady brass in a 460 S&W Encore barrel. I also had work hardening issues causing different amounts effort to resize cases that had been fired a different number of times. I eventually tried some Starline brass but by that time I had become disenchanted with the whole 460 experience and traded it off for a nice Sako A7 rifle in .308 Win. I can't prove it, but I think that using a very strong crimp combined with the 60K PSI this cartridge is used at, causes the cases to stretch.

Thanks guys. I got starline brass and worked up a load this past weekend. Max book load shot very nice out of the smith and zero issues with the brass. Ready for the upcoming season...

Starline brass is definitely the way to go
