Re: I know that the 22 hornet is not a longe range cartridge
Lil' Gun is the powder of choice for the Hornet. Velos are outstanding and accuracy is great.
7mmrhb has a hornet loaded with lil' gun and 40 grain b-tips which will consistently hit a 9" gong at 500 yards! In fact, one warm day this spring, he even hit the same gong at 600 yards a few times! It is hard to believe that little case can do it, and I had to see it to believe it, but I am here to say that it absolutely happened.
Kind of makes me wonder why Dave Petzal proclaimed the hornet a 100 yard gun and the 220 swift useless past 300 yards. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]
If it's not far, it's boring.
