Default Savage 219 22 hornet to K hornet Help needed

Hello,
I have a Savage 219 chambered in 22 hornet. I would like to ream in to a K hornet. But first I need a reamer to rent and advice on how to do the job correctly. Im a smart guy but want to do this correctly and not mess it up. I have been reading about this project I want to do for some time. So ant advice would be greatly appreciated.

I read that there was a reamer for rent here on the forum? If anyone knows I would be interested

Thanks in advance

Not to hijack this thread, but is there a way to take a K-hornet back to a regular .22 Hornet without replacing the barrel?

don't do that. 22 hornet is solid round. you won't make up the deference till 300 yards. you can't see that far.

The K-Hornet conversion isn't about more power as much as it is longer brass life. If you load K-Hornet rounds with regular Hornet data, you'll get at leas t a couple more loads per case...

+1 with geezerbiker, plus, in my experience, better accuracy. Headspace is more uniform on a 40-degree shoulder instead of on the (sometimes irregular) rim.

I once had a 219 in K-Hornet but never found an accurate load for it. I did manage to shoot the fender of my truck with it. The 219 has a dangerous design flaw in that it is possible to break the action open far enough to unload and reload but not quite far enough to fully **** the internal striker. Then when closing the action the striker will ride down, the pin will protrude form breech face and if you snap it shut it will fire the round. Some are cocked by the movement of the top lever and some by breaking the barrel but both types are subject to this misfortune. Always be sure you move the top lever fully and break the barrel fully.
OMG that is funny, the anti-profanity program **** out the word C-o-c-k. This is a firearms site after all.

The story of David & Goliath only demonstrates the superiority of ballistic projectiles over hand weapons, poor old Goliath never had a chance.

coyotejoe: IIRC there were 2 different versions of the 219, one had a striker and one had an internal hammer. (Going from memory here so correct me if I'm wrong).

Did the situation you describe apply to both versions?
