Re: Hornet headspace. Yes, headspacing on rims of inconsistent thickness is the bane of every Hornet. But I've found that by reloading using the Lee Collet neck sizing die that the headspace problem is solved (and there's no lube to be removed from the tiny cases). It is a myth that the Hornet doesn't have enough shoulder to headspace on. Despite the very shallow taper of the Hornet shoulder, the thin brass of the Hornet swells to fill the entire chamber, thus allowing fired cases to hold firmly against the bolt face and the thrust of the firing pin. While neck sizing-only will always improve case life in any cartridge, it doesn't necessarily always improve accuracy. But with the Hornet the improvement can be substantial. My Sako M78 Hornet won't match the accuracy of either my Brno ZKW 465 or my Kimber 82, but it is quite acceptable using an appropriate load in neck sized brass.
