22 Hornet

I don't own one, but friends seem to like the 35gr bullets. If memory serves me correctly there are two bullet diameters for the hornet. Old, old guns take something like a 1/1000" smaller bullet but modern guns use the standard .224.

The other complaint with the 22 hornet is neck stretching after one or two firings. May want to get a trimmer if you don't have one already.
