Tyhe K-Hornet is a nice upgrade to the regular hornat if you reload and your brass will last longer also , the K-hornet is the biggest thing I'd put in a Savage M-40 , I think they are now making a 223 on the M-40 but I'm not sure what the changes are.

If you want some outstanding accuracy out of a hornet action. I am going to say drop down to the 17 cal. I have a buddy with a 17 ackly hornet. He is getting 3500 to 3900 fps out of loads with 25gr bullets It shoots 1/4" 5 shot groups at 100 yards. This is deadly on groudhogs out to about 250 yards. The only problem with it is wind wind can really affect the bullet but they are a blast to shoot very little recoil light powder charges (More bang for the buck). Can't beat that sure beats shooting some of the big magnums out there.

I want to stick with 22 caliber but what I meant by variant is there is a k-hornet with a 35 degree shoulder, one with a 40 degree shoulder, and there might even be another one I was just wonderin which one has the most oomph. also thanks fir the replys
