I have some PPU ammo my picatinny rail should arrive in a day or so, I have a lot of those winchester 40 grn hp's that are used in 22 mag ammo they a cheap and worked well in other hornets so will try what's on hand, I also was given 35grn Hornady vmax
My Handi is one of the newer ones with the 1 in 10 twist. While the PPU ammo does shoot well, My hand load of a hornaday 55 gr soft point over a moderate amount of AA 1680 is outstanding. Bout 3/4 inch groups at 100 yards. Just got some Winchester 64 gr soft points and am going to see iffin I can get them to group. Should be bout right to pop a hog or a small deer here in Arkansas.
JoseBob you sure yours is 1-10 twist? Just haven't heard of that before maybe a 1-9, or a 1-12? If it's a 1-9 you may be able to get it as high as 69gr with a real hot powder case life will probly suffer though. I bought some Blackhills 69gr reloads emergency purchase on PD shoot for my 1-9 .223 and they shot very well. Kurt
