Anyone have any experience with 22 hornet? I have come into about 60lbs of 22 hornet ammo and need something to shoot it with.
1. custom encore barrel
2. CZ 57? American
3. Ruger 22/77 Hornet
You will have more fun with that little hornet than a lot of bigger guns.
I have 12" Hornet in a T/C Contender w 2x and it does 1" if I do my part. I had a 14" with Burris variable but my buddy wanted it worse than I did.
There are a lot of used Contender and Encore barrels out there. You can find them in pistol or carbine versions. Used complete contenders are $350-400 and many with scopes. Several guys on the net specialize in TCs, so go to them first to find good used barrel at least 12-14".
Used Contender barrel avg price is $150 and Encore figure $175. All will shoot MOA or better if you do your part. Cannot see spending $350 on custom barrel for 150-200 yard gun when T/C factory barrels are MOA or better.
