I was wondering what bullets you have had work in your 22 Hornet rifles?
I have a CZ527 American and CZ says its a 1:16 twist. So can I expect to use 40gr bullets like the B-tip, Bilizt king, V max, or Beger HPV. The berger I have and it says 1:15 or higher on the box.
I was expecting to develope a load using 40gr bullets like the above bullets as well as any bullet made just for the Hornet like the 35 V max, and the any 40-45 hornet bullet.
I have shot some 45gr speer hornet bullets when working up loads for it and not any real accuracy using AA1680. But with AA1680 and the 40gr Sierra hornet bullet I have a good 0.60 five shot groups so this is the first good load so far I didn't want to waist time with the non-hornet bullets if the rate of twist is to slow for them. This was (12.5grs AA1680/rem brass/fed205 primer/40gr sierra) and 2728fps with a stdev 13.11 with 0.60 CC five shot groups.
So what bullets shoots great out of your 1:16 twist hornet rifles? What bullets can I expect to shoot accuraty.
I have given up on 205 small rifle primers with Lilgun. Hodgdon said my starting load of 11.0grs was to low it gave 3100fps with 40gr bergers, and at their advise loaded five 12.0gr loads and 3200fps. So I am going with Speers Manual and CCI 500 Small Pistol Primers, win brass, Lilgun,40/45gr bullet of choice and see if the velociies match up.
Also how do you think the 40gr Sierra (hornet sp) will work on bobcats/coyotes/ground squirrals?
