Reloading a .22 Hornet pistol

I'm new to reloading. I just purchased a Taurus Raging Bull in .22Hornet with a 10" barrel. Do I reload a pistol and rifle .22 Hornet the same way? Thanks for any help.

The Raging Bull is a strong pistol, as long as you keep the COL to specs.

Try LiLGun and 35grain V-max. The 35 grain V-max is a perfect match for the hornet. Its stubby shape will help you control COAL and its designed to open up Dramatically at hornet speeds....

I'll give the lilgun a try. Now, I have the 40gr. V-max which I use in my rifle. Would I have trouble with COL in the pistol? Many thanks for the info.
