None of the available .22 Hornets were 100% "dream quality" for me. A Sako L-46 would have been close, but one for the right price never came along. I've owned everything you can imagine: Brnos, CZs,...

Well, I couldn't locate my reamer, and I had no offers, so I called Dave at PTG. Since a new tight-neck .221 reamer was going to be about the same as a wildcat reamer, I decided to go with the...

Needing a Tight-Neck .221 FB Reamer and Wildcat Info

Hi all,
Before I spend the money on replacing my apparently lost tight-neck .221 Fireball finishing reamer, I though I would reach out to the brethren here. Anyone have such a reamer I could rent...

A Favor from Owners of Sako L-46s in .222 and .218 Bee

Yet another project has started at the TBR household (using passive voice to divert responsibility for starting yet another project when a dozen other pending projects await my attention :o). I have...

I know you've already heard from me, but to offer a bit more detail, a friend and I rebarreled a .22 Hornet 527 to .17 AH, way before the .17 Hornet appeared. I say "we," but, I did all the work,...

This was always my problem with the various K-Hornets in the CZ 527: achieving smooth, trouble-free feeding from the magazine, and most end up using them as single shots. I've actually had a bit...

The really streamlined, high BC, explosive bullets that have been such a game changer for the Hornet are long and have long ogives. So, when seated deeply enough to fit the magazine, the case mouth...

I gotta agree with this. My last concern would be Hornet brass quality, especially since we've all agreed to keep the loads mild, right :cool:? I'm not sure I follow your plan to load each round...

Are you thinking of a .20 Ackley Hornet, or what? That would impact my answer.

I would hardly call the Anschutz barrel attachment "snap-on." It is pressed and pinned into place, and, as one who...

Your "small thorn" comment has me well pegged. Still, my aversion to the slightly larger action has now diminished to nearly nothing, since the difference is much less than I first believed, and I...

Was already aware of this, which is why I was looking for the earlier Hornet-specific action, but there really isnt as much dimensional difference as I thought.
Of course, I know its a personal...

Bolt: .230, but some of the...

I appreciate the sage advise from all.

Rick: Do you really think the English walnut sporter is the more unique, and the VE closer to common off-the-shelf? I was leaning heavily toward the VE,...

I believe this is exactly what most custom rifle enthusiasts would say, but when I handle these two rifles, up close, and personal, the Varmint Extreme is just stunning.

Thanks for responding.

A Tale of Two Coopers: Dilemma with a Capital D

So, all I really wanted was a small-action M-38 in either .22 or .17 Hornet. And by small action, I mean one of the early, cute-as-a-bug’s-ear M-38s with the smaller (shorter) bolt and receiver. I...

Looking for .17 AH Reloading dies

As stated in the header, I'm looking for a set of .17 AH reloading dies. I would also consider a set of forming dies for the .17 AH as well.

Please PM me if interested.

Thanks

One Step Closer to Keeping This a .17 Javelina

I thought I did mention it. I got 3/4" 5-shot groups at 100 yards. That was using a massive (relatively) 36x scope precariously perched on that little 4.5# rifle, but I could never duplicate that...
