    I wanted to know if anybody can tell me why 22 hornet bullets are so expensive, and are these bullets a necked down version of another round. Thanks for the help from larry.

    Larry I think it is a situation where manufacturer's make only a few runs of Hornets a year and they sell them at a higher price simply because they can. As far as I know the Hornet can not be made from any other round. Hope this helps.

    You think factory Hornet ammo is expensive? Check the price for .218 Bee! The Hornet is a good round for reloading. You can brew up much better ammo than factory fodder. Getting started costs a bit, but you will be ahead in the long run if you shoot much. The Hornet is a good little varmit killer if you watch the wind and keep distances reasonable.

    Keep in mind that Hornet bullets are offered in .223 (generally pre-war guns) and .224 (generally post-war guns).
