Thread: Loads for 22hornet using imr4227?

    Loads for 22hornet using imr4227?

    Hi all, has anyone used imr4227 in their hornets? I'm having trouble getting win296 and I can get ADI 2205, which I am told is imr4227. Little gun isn't available either. Is till have a bit of win296 left but I am tired of waiting for more stock!
    Cheers wes

    This is a good place to look for the range of loads. They only list two bullet weights: 30 and 45 grains, but you can use the 45 grain starting load with any weight in between and work up. Can you get H-110, per chance??~Muir

    hi if you use 45 grain sp. IMR4227 start at 9.8 you can go up to 10.8 .i have used 4227 9,8 grains under 45 grain sp.v good sub inch at 100 yards my gun is a cz brno.hope this helps.40 grain vmax and imr 4227 start 9.5 go to 11.3 max load

    Hi oldmate, AR2205 is not an exact match for either of the 4227's I have used all three and you need to work up loads for each, I had to in my Brno ZKW 465 I have tried 2400 which I need to do more testing with and Win296
    which goes very well have not tried Lil'gun yet. Robert.

    hi Oldmate
    your ADI 2205 is the same powder as h4227 (adi make most powders for hogdons but not all )
    so you can use the h4227 data

    here is Adi data
    http://www.adi-powders.com.au/handloaders/rifle.asp?Calibre=22+Hornet

    if you look a hogdons data you see it is the same

    hope this helps

    Hi guys, well I went to the gun shop today and I left very disappointed! Nothing of the following in stock, Winchester powder of any kind, federal 22lr ammo only 2bricks of cci std vel, primers, hornady 35 g max ammo, 35 g max projectiles nothing under 55gr in .22 cal,no 6mm projectiles under 105 g hornady a max and no 12g shotgun shells. I left with a brick of cci ammo good ammo but my rifle likes federal. Everything is on back order owner said he has $20000 on back order! How crap is that!
    So I don't hold much hope for 296 any time soon. And I did some reloading yesterday and have bugged all left!
    ar 2205 here I come.

    How do you rate the 2205 compared to win296?
    my hornet is a 90 model cz/Brno fox model 2. I love the gun and the cartridge just not the price of ammo! I'm out of good cases! My local gun shop did have Remington factory loads but I started buying hornady brass and now I don't want to have 4 different brands of brass
