Have a question

I just bought a 22 Hornet rifle and am planning on doing reloading for it. What size bullet do you use for them? I'm not talking about grains. Is it .224 or what?

224

Every day you see it on the news. Another felons life needlessly spared by inaccurate fire.

Look in the Hornady line... they make a bullet for the Hornet.. I think maybe 40 gr.

Moss, in my Ruger 77/22 22 Hornet I use H110 but there are other good powders including W296 and 2400.

Moss, let us know how you make out with LiL Gun. I have heard good things about that powder in the Hornet but have not tried it myself. Thanks.

LIL'GUN is awesome in the Hornet! Great choice. A friend who reloads 22 hornet said that's his most accurate and clean burning powder. H110 can get a little dirty in rifle from my experience.
