22 Hornet Ammo For Sale

The .22 Hornet or 5.6×35mmR is a varmint small-game hunting, survival and competition centerfire rifle cartridge commercially introduced in 1930 and is considerably more powerful than the .22 WMR and the .17 HMR, achieving higher velocity with a bullet twice the weight. The Hornet also differs very significantly from these in that it is not a rimfire but a centerfire cartridge. This makes it hand loadable and reloadable, and thus much more versatile. It was the smallest commercially available .22 caliber.

.22 hornet bullets for sale Performance

Factory ammunition is widely available from all major manufacturers, generally with bullets weighing 34, 35, 45, or 46 grains (2.2, 2.3, 2.9, 3.0 g), with bullets invariably either hollow point or soft point. Muzzle velocity typically is in the 2,500 to 3,100 ft/s (760 to 940 m/s) range, and muzzle energy is just over 700 ft·lbf (950 J) for factory ammo fired from a rifle. (Velocities and energies are less when Hornet ammunition is fired from short-barreled firearms.)

Published handload data from major handloading-product companies shows how versatile the .22 Hornet can be. According to the Hodgdon reloading data, the heavier bullets show a serious affinity to produce much higher velocities than other powder with heavy bullets in this small case.

22 hornet ammo ballistics

How does it compare to a round like the .218 bee? Ballistic trajectory of both is near identical. How about compared to a round like the new .17 fireball? Compared to the .17 fireball the .22 bee drops like a rock after the 200-yard mark to be completely honest. 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.
