22 hornet ammo
22 Hornet ammo refers to the ammunition designed for the .22 Hornet cartridge, a small-caliber rifle round. The .22 Hornet is a centerfire cartridge that was developed in the 1920s and has since gained popularity for varmint hunting and target shooting.
The .22 Hornet cartridge has a bullet diameter of .224 inches (5.7 mm) and a relatively small case capacity. It is known for its moderate recoil and relatively low muzzle blast. The cartridge typically features a lightweight bullet with a weight ranging from 35 to 55 grains (2.3 to 3.6 grams).
.22 Hornet ammo is available in various configurations, including full metal jacket (FMJ) bullets for target shooting and hollow point (HP) or soft point (SP) bullets for hunting applications. The FMJ rounds are commonly used for plinking and practice, while the HP and SP rounds offer reliable expansion and terminal performance for small game hunting.
