    The best powder for a hornet is lil gun .

    Before Lil-Gun came along the magic powder was 4227.

    My three top powders for the Hornet begin with Lil Gun. They didn't design it for the Hornet but thsy could make the claim and no one would doubt them. Next H-110 tied with Accurate Arms 1680. The latter two develop more pressure by a bit but accuracy is outstanding with any.~Muir
