What I'm seeing with mine is when I try to feed a round into the chamber it gets thrown off at an angle and then some times it wont throw the spent case out. I like it to much to send it back now so I will just have to wait til next February. Just started loading for it this weekend and I'm shooting the nosler 20 gr. hollow point with good results. I found out last January the Hornady 20 gr. were not as fur friendly as reported, exit holes were around the size of a quarter and some even bigger depending on what it hit inside. Haven't shot anything with the noslers yet but hopefully they are more fur friendly. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
I would still call and speak with a Savage Rep.....they are ultra tight lipped about Hornet problems but I think they want it squared away everyone. Have you tried the 25gr Hornady HP?....keep us posted and thanks for your input!

no, I haven't tried the Hornady 25 gr yet. I will contact Savage but it will be after our season here is over next February. I would do it now but I'm afraid I wouldn't get it back before October 25th.

I bet you would. They are pretty quick. I would still call and inquire.

I am looking forward to the arrival of a 17 Hornet Encore 26 inch rifle barrel! Would be nice to get it ASAP since the season is on in Pa! I have 200 rounds of brass and 50 rounds of Hornady factory ammo. So many if my calling acquaintances are doing well on fox with the Savage 25 ! There were some feed problems they had too but Savage also fixed them! Kind of glad I went with Ghent Encore!
