It's not a 300 yard gun, hence the drop at that range. I shall be zeroing mine at 150.  :thumbs:

still depends on mv and bc which does or can make a big difference ! but in mine it was :

 

25yds----   -0.4

50--------- +0.33

75--------- +0.8

100-------- +0.9

125--------  +0.7

150--------   0.00

175--------  -1.1

200--------  -2.7"

 

 even at 200 (max for a hornet) still doable without needing to resort to memory to much  :thumbs:

You zero at the distance that you need with the ammo you are using.

 

Every rifle will have a marginally different performance, but as a VERY rough guide I'd say 150 yards is useful for a Hornet, if you have rimfires to deliver below that and bigger centrefires above that!

 

Big generalisation just the same!

Just out of curiosity what's the felt recoil and muzzle blast like on a .22 Hornet. I'd rather get my wife the .22 Hornet rather than the .17. She hates the .22-250 even after I've put a bug reflex mod on it lol

Cheers for that. She has her Fac for .22lr and .222 but she thinks the .222 will be similar to my .22-250 I assured her it should be a lot less than the .250 but shes certain she wants something smaller lol.

same bullet though ! mind the 222 is sweet shooting but ive always had a soft spot for the hornet " if she does have a hornet YOU will have a nice range below and above with the 22-250"  ;)

That's what I was thinking mate. I really like my .22-250 and wouldn't change it for anything. But am thinking get the wife the .22 Hornet and possibly a smaller CF for myself.
