    Yeah I was pushing that powder to see what it could do.. that was 13.5gr but primer was getting flat and craters. Backed it off to 12gr which still gets 3140 and no real pressure signs so the brass wont suffer as bad

    Ah ok.

    Depends on the size of the read bell housing. Some scopes can be wider than others. I usually take it into a good local gun store and get them to check which one's work. You also get them straight away too!

    Yip your Browning is a beauty! They made the action around the wrong way but still a lovely rifle.
    Love my old 1949 Brno 465 too.. a real gem in great condition.

    I do prefer the K hornets but Id never do that to this old girl. The .22 TCM replaced that role for me with better speed and the brass copes with much higher pressures.

    Thought I should run the hornet on some paper and see how it's shooting as it was a bit of a rush job last week. Pretty happy so far

    This is my Weihrauch 22 Hornet. Loaded with Win 296 in RWS cases and Sierra 40 grain Hornet projectiles (1200) it does ok.

    Yes the trigger is very nice! The front trigger on most double set triggers has a very heavy pull weight if the trigger isn't set, the Weihrauch is the complete opposite. With the trigger set mine breaks like glass at 8 ounces and with it unset the front trigger still breaks at 1 lb 2 oz (18 oz) but has a fair amount of travel.
    I also have the same rifle in 22 LR but it has their standard trigger and it too breaks like glass with no travel at a nice light 1 lb 4 oz
    (20 oz).

    this is a great thread but the title had me worried as i thought this might have been photos of @Rushy from days gone by in the porn industry.

    Went for a wander tonight and saw what I thought was a hare through the rangefinder but when I put the scope on him it looked like a rock/clump of dirt, gave a whistle and an ear moved so that was enough for a green light. So what I thought was a nice head shot hare(115m, nothing outstanding but man I'm loving this laser like rifle)for the pot....
