1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    try Sinclar supply,part of Brownells. They had bullets. As far as primers go,if you have small pistol primers they work great,and try "lil" gun powder from Hodgdon's,great powder.

    Have to agree with sterlingworth on the "LilGun" powder. 12.5 grains and 40 grain V-max can make a dime size 5 shot group at 100 yards. Pretty good for a hornet and a shakey shooter such as myself.

    What kind of Hornet do you have,is it an old one with a 223 bore or a newer one with a 224 bore? That can make a diff. Ray

    The gun is a winchester model 43 serial number 9919. Not sure when it was made. I did not know till recently there was a difference, I have been shooting brand new remington and hornady rounds through it. I hope this helps. Thanks from Larry.

    The 43's were built on a modified rimfire action. They are notorious for having excessive headspace problems. The .22 Hornets have a .224 bore. They were also available in .218 Bee and .25 Remington. There were less than 65,000 made in all calibers. The headspace issues occur when folks shoot full house hand loads through them, causing chamber pressure to be on the high end. lil gun is an excellent powder to use in those old ..22 Hornet 43's. Factory ammo will be OK, too...just not as accurate as a good handload. Just remember that whatever you load, high chamber pressure is not good for the 43's. I have a 43 in .22 Hornet, and I shoot it a lot. You can tell from my handle that .22 Hornets are my favorite little critter gun. Good luck with your vintage Winchester.

    One of my very first Pre-64 Model 70s was in .22 Hornet and it soured me on the cartridge. Terrible groups with factory ammo at the time (Mid 60s) and I hadn't yet gotten into metallic reloading. Bet I could find a good load if I still had it....

    One other thing to consider is the seating depth on the load and whether the bullet starts out in the rifling or "jumps" into it. I have a 1730 Anschutz stainless heavy barrel. It will shoot factory 45 grain loads and give you a respectable group. But if I shoot Hornady 35 grain factory loads, shots 3 and 4 are several inches apart and number 5 is off the target. The 35 grain bullets are definately shorter and some rifles, such as my Anschutz, do not like the bullet "jumping" into the rifling. I got the best groups out of mine when the bullet is seated so that it is just about on the rifling when you close the bolt, maybe .001 off the lands. However, a friend of mine had a Ruger 77/22hornet that shot excellent groups with Hornady ammo with 35 grain V-max bullets.

    Sterlingworth is spot-on. Older Hornets can be .223 caliber whereas the newer ones are .224. Matching your bullet to the barrel ensures optimum accuracy. Chichay

    Muskie,

    I tried to pm you.

    Do you still want the 1500 rds of new Winchester brass in the sealed bags? If not I'll put it up and sell off to someone. l.g.

    I use 35 grain V max bullets in my CZ. It is my woodchuck gun for my yard. It blows woodchucks to hell. It will go right through the shoulders of a big chuck and they don't move. H110 or w 296.
