Forming 22 K Hornet Cases

20190425_172634_rsz.jpg

The spring weather has been cool, windy and wet.  I still have the furnace on!

While wrapping up the 30-303 book, I have been forming 22 Hornets into 22 K Hornets. The 22 K Hornet is an improvd cartridge that is made by firing the original - the 22 Hornet - in an improved hamber.

With the new cartridge came some equipment changes. I am happy to report that my Lee Collet die is on the way back.  I sent my 22 Hornet die to Lee to rework into a 22 K Hornet die.

Here's what the target looked like after I finished shooting 100 Hornets in the newly reamed K chamber.  Not bad for four different bullets.  I am anxious to see how the K Hornet will group with a 40 gr. Hornady V Max and Lil Gun.

The target was set up at 50 yards.  Usually, accuracy isn't the best when making improved cases.
