.17 or .22 hornet cases and load data please ??

Post by CustomRifleScopesUK » 14 Aug 2017, 23:17

Hi Guys,

Starting to load my own and need either .17 or .22 hornet cases, please PM me if you want to sell any ?

i am also trying to find information on how to get these babies under supersonic speeds, i have been told it is possible and the bullet stays stable down to 1000 fps so well within the subsonic range.

I do want versatility, i have a sound problem in some areas i shoot so need to keep the noise down and other times i want the full power the 17 hornet can give. So any pointers or info would be appreciated :thumbup:

HI can't help you on subsonic loads, but my mate found this thread below useful for working up a std load.
