    PPU Brass .22 Hornet

    The only .22 Hornet brass I can get is PPU at 23 per hundred (new Brass). I am new to reloading, how good is this brass and how is the price?

    I have used PPU brass in other calibers and found it quite good. I have not yet used the Hornet brass I picked up. As to price, the Winchester and Remington here, when we can get it, is about $27 per fifty. The conversion is about 1.5 so that would make your PPU about $35 US per 100. That's a good price compared to the alternative here.~Muir

    Use PPU in 223,308 and 6.5 and it reloads well. Have had no problems.

    As above, I've used PPU brass for 22Hornet, no trouble at all.

    The PPU hornet brass I have just keeps on going, well over 20 cycles now, not split a single case yet.
    Nearly time to retire them though as the primers are not as firm a fit as they once were.

    i have just this week started loading .22 hornet with ppu brass. out of the hundred i bought there were a couple of slightly dented necks but they pushed out ok and have loaded and fed into the rifle just fine

    I use it for feeding my 17 Hornet and it's better than the Hornady cases and 1/2 the price. Ok, it's needs some work for mine but still good value. Sometimes the odd case has a slight flash hole burr: just keep an eye out and de-burr with a proper tool or suitable drill bit.
