Default 22 K Hornet Load

Hi all,
After a long load development journey I reckon I have finally settled on a load
That’s accurate and hard hitting.
I have recently had my Brno ZKW 465 re chambered to the K, the load that is now consistently grouping about .7 is 11.8 gns of AR2205 (4227) under a 40gn Nosler BT, and small pistol primers, PPU brass (annealed) and only use neck die (RCBS). Took out this morning and took 2 Hares (Jackrabbit) one at about 110 yds other 80 yds, and real terminal damage!
I had tried 5 other projectile/powder combos before!
Jay.
* not sure how to attach pics!?

Sounds like you found your rifles sweet spot, so now just enjoy and give the critters heck. Yes photos are nice, but I have never been able to figure out how to add them here, other than in a album in the community section at the top of the page.

Jay, looks like you're on to something there, as those hares can testify.

We all know that every rifle is unique to itself, but for comparison I offer a target shot with my Browning 1885 Low Wall. I seldom shoot paper except for load development/sighting in, but the target shows what the little K-Hornet is capable of with the right combination of components.



That little Low Wall is one sweet walkabout rifle for casual cruising in the sagebrush and junipers.

And to Bill K:
If you use a photo hosting site, it's easy-peasy to load photos on any forum for a yearly pittance in terms of cost. I use ImageShack, bailed on PhotoBucket because of their photo hostage taking effort a couple of years ago.

Great group Rick,
Bit of fiddling and time, but worth it now.
Time spent developing loads is time well spent, you always gain knowledge and experience.
I wish the young ones of today tried that! instead of just wanting answers!
Yep I will look into image shack, thanks.
Jay

If you haven't already read the McPherson article on the 22 K-Hornet, it's excellent.

Hello Johnny,
Have you got a link to the “ McPherson” article, is it on Saubier.
Thanks for the tip.
Jay
