Take a page from Rocky Raab's Hornet playbook.

As I've written and explained many times, THE Hornet load is: Rem 6 1/2 small rifle OR CCI 500 small pistol primer, 13.0 LilGun, and use of the Lee factory Crimp die. Brass and your choice of bullet from 35-45 grains.

It WORKS!

The Sierra 40gr Hornet (1200) is a good bullet choice.

+1 Start at 12 gr and work up and pay attention to what brass you are using. Rem brass has a larger case capacity than Win. I can't fit 13 gr in Win brass. I use 40 o 35 Vmax with 12.6-12.8 gr Lil'gun and small PISTOL primers with a light Lee Factory Crimp.
