Hunting: with my 303 rifle I’m getting neck splitting on every shot with this new batch of ammo. What would be the likely cause ?

    Case necks were not properly annealed. If hand loads, work hardening from resizing, still need to be annealed.

    I would first check the head space.  Just a thought but that is what I would do.

    Check the firing chamber, you may have enough erosion that the case is not supported at the neck.    There could also be a split in the firing chamber.   Until you get a good look stop firing the gun.
