Re: Bad accuracy in a 22 Hornet H&R
My rifle have serial no AU486XXX, is that old enough for the 223? - I have only tried different 224.
Hodgdon Lil'gun is not imported to Sweden, we only have Vihtavuori N110 and (discontinued) Norma 123.
Hornets are very rare here, due to shortage of suitable powder and very expensive factory ammo, about $1.00 - $3.50/each.
Even brass are rare but can be imported from the US, Norma doesn't make Hornet brass any longer - I try to use Winchester or RWS, the S&B doesn´t hold up to reload, old NOS Norma (if found) demand premium cost. Ten new Winchesters or RWS are $3.20, ten new Normas about $7.50 (if found).
About 2 lbs (1 kg) powder is $57 here, good for 1700 shots, bullets (SAKO) are $14 at 100.
Anyway, the Hornets are very economical compared to other centerfires, even a 50 rnd box of 22 rimfire are $4.30 theise days (CCI Standard).
