I guess I'm a little confused about what you're doing..

This is a Savage rifle and you used factory Hornady ammo to set the head-space?

Ok, if you do that, it might not be technically correct but it should be perfectly functional, so long as you understand the effect it's having and set your dies accordingly.

All you need to do is set the die to size the shoulder .001 or .002(at most) shorter than the Hornady ammo.

If you have an actual "Go-gauge", you should be using that to set the barrel to minimum and then you can set your dies the exact same way. Run gauge into the press, screw the die down until it touches the gauge, remove the gauge and screw the die down another .001.
