Any of you lads got any experience of the 218 Bee, it's a rifle I have often thought of trying, but know nothing about, so thought I would ask ?? They are supposed to be good guns,

I think it's only marlin that chamber it in their m94.

Think it's based on a necked down 25/20 case which itself is a necked down 30/20.

 

Performance is slightly stronger than hornet.

Flat nose bullets are getting hard to find for use in tubular magazines.

Hornady make a nice 45 grn. It's like a mini xtp of Thiers.

i have loaded 222, and currently load 22 hornet, and 223, I have a love for the smaller rounds and swear by my 22 hornet, but the 218 bee was mentioned, and I realised I had heard of it, but never tried it so thought I would have a delve in and see what comes up, they recon it's better than the hornet, and that's what pricked my ears up,
