    Give SERIOUS consideration to having the chamber modified to the K-Hornet profile

    Cases are fireformed by shooting standard 22 Hornet ammunition in it

    Makes a big difference to ballistics

    I love my CZ hornet and it is my most used rifle, does it all out to 200 yards, more if you do your part.
    Fox at 150 yards is easy, how far past that you go depends on the bullet you pick.

    From the info there I have to say makes no difference
    I can get 45 grain soft point out at 3000fps from an 18 inch barrel using a case full of Lil'Gun.

    I have used a hornet for more than 20 years a good old fashioned round that pointed correctly does the job I remember shooting a fox at 300 paces. a friend who is one of the best shots I have ever met (naturally gifted)shot rabbits and hares consistantly at what I would not attempt.
    Have Confidance it is a good round without messing with.

    Respectfully, with today's powders "K"ing a Hornet doesn't really buy you anything.

    Agreed, the K Hornet doest really offer anything more really in terms of performance with modern day bullets and powders.
