22 Hornet | 235 Yard Nut Shot

Recommended Posts

Dropped another this evening with the 22 Hornet. Definitely my favourite calibre. The homeloaded 40GR V-Max continue to do me proud. Bit tricky tonight with a variable 12mph wind.

good work Elliot, what scope are you using there?

 

I'm looking for a .222 at the moment and also a suitable scope.

It's a Falcon Menace M18. Good scope. I'd recommend one of you're after one for the 222

Very underestimated round. My mate has just bought the new, fashionable, 17 Hornet. He's been very surprised with how capable the 22 Hornet is with my 40GR V-Max homeloads zipping at 3,000fps.

 

We'll be putting them up head to head soon and I'm quietly confident that the 22 will keep up. He's feeling the same too, after seeing the performance.

Probably, it was discussed in a earlier topic on Hornets
