Yes, there are metal horns available for most servos. What brand is the servo?

Are you using the correct spline count (teeth on the servo output shaft)?
Hitec is 24 spline, maybe you have a 25 spline by accident.

Default end point adjustments, try new horn....

Oh yeah, there are a lot of aluminum servo horns out there, the racers edge ones are cool. but if your stripping out the plastic ones you may really chew up the servo with an aluminum one. Check the end points, and tone down the brakes a little bit.....

I used one of the horns that comes w/ the hitec servo. I had to do a slight modification because it was too long. They are plastic, but super durable.

the hitec red servo horns are pretty durable..
