I would also add that the most prevalent problem with reloading the 22 Hornet is attempting to get "just that little extra velocity" out of them. Due to the small case capacity a small amount of powder change will cause major changes in Chamber Pressure. I can not advise caution enough. Personally for myself even when working on a load for my Remington 22-250 VSSF I move up a tenth of a grain vise two tenths at a time. When loading for my 338 Win. Mag. I went up two tenths at a time and sometimes even a half a grain at a time.Just depending on how the load was working out. I absolutely agree with the idea of purchasing an accurate scale. They are readily available on Ebay and other on line shopping places. Good luck in any event. Great little cartridge in my opinion. catfish
I agree about not pushing the Hornet. Some of the published starting and traditional loads were loosening my primer pockets. Along that same line of thinking, I cannot see why anyone would do the "K-Hornet" process on one. If I wanted more than the standard Hornet could deliver, I would go to the .223 or the like.
I try to avoid warm loads in any of my rifles, prefering to go for accuracy instead of speed. However, once and awhile a gun will seem to want to shoot best with a warm load and then I will reluctantly stick with it...but that is pretty rare.
