22 Hornet Ammo

22 Hornet is one of the smaller centerfire rifle cartridges available but it packs a nasty "sting" against varmints, firing a light bullet at a high velocity for maximum fragmentation.

.22 Hornet loads typically fire a light bullet in the 35-50 grain range at a muzzle velocity at or slightly under 3,000 feet per second. This gives them excellent medium-range performance against rabbits, squirrels, coyotes, and other pests.

The .22 Hornet is well suited for reloading due its centerfire design; many handloaders prefer it to rimfire varmint cartridges like the .22 WMR for this reason.
