Thread: 22 K Hornet Re-loading

    22 K Hornet Re-loading

    I will be getting my 22 Hornet back as a K Hornet from Richard Pope shortly and want to work up some loads.

    Anybody out there suggest a consistent load with Vhit N120, H110 or something else ?
    I plan to use 40gr Nosler BTs, what brass has proved best ?

    Has anyone used the 35gr Nosler Lead Free BTs ?

    Any advice appreciated.

    What rifle is it, I have tried 40 grain Noslers in my 527 hornet, they shoot very well and did all I hoped, but they are a single load option as they will not fit the magazine.
    I did (briefly) consider shortening some cases just so I could seat them properly and still get them in the mag, but as yet have not bothered.
    (may be a waste of time due to lack of room for a full charge as well)

    Go to Hodgdon's website. My top choice would be Lil Gun. Next, the more peaky H-110. I don't know about you folks, but I'm not buying "lead free" unless I'm forced into it like those poor ba$tards in California.~Muir

    Hi Muir,
    I am looking at getting 35gr Nosler BT Lead free, good BC and they travel faster, will report how they perform.
