Sellier & Bellot Rifle Ammuntion SB22HA, 22 Hornet, Full Metal Jacket (FMJ), 45 GR, 2690 fps, 20 Rd/bx All in all not a round for large or even medium game, or anything past 250 yards for that matter, but an excellent choice for cheap fun or small varmint hunting under 200-180 yard mark. When the .222 Remington was introduced in 1950 it stole the show from the .22 Hornet among varmint shooters, but history has proven it to lack the staying power of the mild-mannered little Hornet. The introduction of the .220 Swift in the mid ‘30s showed the shooting world the meaning of velocity, though it came at a price: the barrels of that era didn’t deal well with the heat generated by the huge case, and throat erosion was a challenge. The .22 Hornet was designed back in the 1920's and was based off the .22 WCF and makes for a good small varmint round if you can find a gun to shoot it. Winchester introduced the .22 Hornet in late 1930/early 1931 in two loadings: one with a softnose bullet, the other with a hollowpoint, both at 2500 fps. Hunting Sampler 5,5 mm /.22 cal. It is considerably more powerful than the rimfire .22 WMR and the .17 HMR, achieving higher velocity with a bullet twice the weight of the .17 HMR bullet. 22 Hornet - Bulk SP Prvi Partizan Ammo: 45gr: n/a: 1,000 $ 579.00: $0.58: SGammo.
