    Hornady in mine and again sub inch, kept getting split necks with Remington but not yet in hundreds of rounds of hornady.

    The Hornady 20gr XTP's seem good too.

    I must be special :D, All joking aside, that is not good news,is this relatively new ammo. To be fair, most of this year i have been using LR and AIR as a lot of Bunnies/Squirrels about

    maybe your gun just needs shooting in or a really good clean or both.

    My 455 groups an inch at 110yards with Remington’s. Not good with Federals. That’s all I’ve tried so far.

    Unzipped a crow at 120 yards and scared the feathers off the rest on Monday.

    I had spilt on all of the makes, mostly hornady the only make ive never had a spilt case is federal but that may just be because I’ve not long been using them

    I had the complete reverse. I've had loads of split Federal cases (I could guarantee at least 10 from a box of 50 would split) but not had one Hornady case split, and I've gone through a fair few boxes now.
