[Snort-users] reject is identical to drop

I'm using snort (v2.9.0.5) inline with iptables. I have a rule with "reject"
action, but when it triggers, no packet is sent back to the sender (tcpdump
on all interfaces confirm this).

The rule is:
reject tcp any any -> any 7

The log shows:
07/07-00:15:19.553113  [Drop][Priority: 0] {TCP} ->

This is identical to the behaviour when I change the action to "drop".

Is there anything I'm missing or doing wrong?
