    I was having trouble finding rings and someone suggested that bolt clearance can be an issue so mediums it is. @Russian 22 are you running lows if so what are they? I might look into

    The main website for the 22 Hornet (and all of the variants) is saubier.com

    I have a old Walther 22 Hornet that has been rechambered to the K version. It has had a hard life the blueing is gone and it has a few pits at the chamber end of barrel but still shoots quite well. It cost me 500 rds of handloaded 223 ammo. Have shot a few animals with it , goats being the biggest and rabbits , possums and wallabies making up the smaller animals. Great caliber on the likes of wallabies. Very economical on powder at close to 700 rounds out of a tin. I use the 45 gr Hornady SP mostly but the 40 gr Noslar BT shoots well and is good on rabbits, possums etc. Both shoot to the same point of impact which makes things easier.Name:  Wallaby with the 22 KHornet Rotoehu.JPG

    I currently use AR 2205, My barrel is only 20 inch and with the 45 gr bullet I get 2700fps. My load is about 1.5 grs under the book max but find that in my rear locking action it is ok, my brass doesn't last that long, not as long as a front locking actioned rifle would.

    Just had a Hornet reloading sesh tonight.
    Ive had a few .22x36R, 22 hornets and 22 K hornets over the year and tried many loads such as 2205, 2207, H110 (Win 296), and Lilgun which gave good speed with the least pressure but the stand out powder for speed and accuracy for me is Alliant 300MP.

    I liked to run the 40gr Vmax in the K hornet bit the BRNO 465s mag limits my OAL so only load the 35gr Vmax abs 45gr SPs in that one now.
