Are there somewhere a site dedicated to this cartridge? If it could be as good as RFC is to .22LR it would be nice

Don't know any good sites for the Hornet, but back about 2001 or so, Ross Seyfried did a pair of articles in sequential issues of Rifle and Handloader that had some great loads and tips for working with this fine little cartridge. The best tip was to use small pistol primers with most pistol powders (but not LiL Gun). I have a Browning Low Wall that dotes on H110, Fed. 100 Match primers and 40gr. V-Maxes seated out long. I'll try to find the articles and give you a more precise date, so you can order a copy.

K-Hornet

I have/had a Winchester Mod 43 that I re-chambered to K-Hornet. My son has it now and in the past has killed several woodchucks.

I have a 527 American in 22 hornet and love it!

13.2 of Lil Gun, lit by a Rem 6 1/2 primer, using 35 V-MAX's or 34gr Midway "Dogtown" hollow points either one, in Remington cases and seated to an OAL of 1.735". Fantastic overall setup.

Sorry this took so long, but the Rifle issue is 193, Jan. 2001, and the Handloader is 209, Feb. 2001. You should be able to order a reprint or possibly even a real magazine from Wolfe Publishing. Be warned, however; if you're used to the usual Shooting and Blasting type magazines, these will spoil you forever.
Ross can sound a bit "toney" at times, and is definitely opinionated, but really knows his stuff and has really helped me out on occasion.

Do you all feel the SP primer is the way to go. What would be the pro and cons of the SP vs the SR. I am getting ready to do my first Hornet reloads in the next month or so, as soon as I use up the 100 Privi I bought. I have the 35gr Vmax, lil gun powder and CCI SR #400 and CCI SP #500 on hand. What would be the best choice of primer for shooting out to 100yds.

Small pistol primers work well for me. If you look for Vincent's posts on 22 hornet I believe he gives details on various primers.
