    I have a question, I undersand you can make 17Al hornet or the new 17 HHornet cartriges from regular 22 hornet brass, But has any one experience with the 22 k hornet? Will it work as well?

    No,,,22K hornet is made from 22 hornet .I'm sure you would be trying to reinvent the wheel. 17 Ackley and the new 17 hornet are easy to make from 22 hornet.
    If you have 22 K hornet already just keep it and start with new hornet brass.
