.22 Caliber (.224) 40 gr. Hornet
For rifles, this bullet is formed with a thin-walled jacket and soft core in the traditional roundnose shape for cartridges such as the 22 Hornet, 22 K-Hornet, or 218 Bee at muzzle velocities in the 2600 to 2900 fps range. The thin jacket and rounded nose of this bullet provides outstanding accuracy and effective expansion on small varmints at these modest velocities. This bullet is ideal for barrels with 1x16" twist rates and muzzle velocities that require a "short" bullet for proper stability. It is also effective in rifles firing medium-capacity cartridges, such as the 222 Remington and 223 Remington, for target and varmint shooting at muzzle velocities up to 3500 fps.
For handguns, this bullet with a thin jacket and lots of exposed lead are ideal for all centerfire cartridges in 22 caliber. It will range in expansion from being a varmint bullet at Hornet handgun velocities to an explosive "Blitz" style Varminter at 223 Remington velocities. The bullets with a round nose shape are capable of outstanding accuracy, especially at short to moderate ranges.

|Used this bullet in .223 diameter with great results. Can not find the 1200 any where in any store. Hope these are avalable soon.|

|This little hornet works very well for me out to about 125 yards on small/medium hogs. Great penetration and excellent terminal ballistics. A well placed shot puts them on the ground for good. Phenomenally accurate. Shot after shot, the placement is spot on. This little thing gets it done ethically, economically, and comfortably. Well done Sierra Bullets! Note: we need more please--and soon.|
