Nosler 45 Grain Solid Base .224" Hornet Bullets #35487



Log in to see fewer ads
Uncle Jed & Vincent,
Is the Nosler product number 35487?
If so, I was just at my (not quite) local Sportman's Warehouse and they had those bullets on the shelf, priced at $12.50 per 100.
I didn't buy any, but they had several boxes.

Not sure about the accual product No., Max..
What the problem for me would be...
Why work up a load, that I could not replenish later??
I have seen the Nosler Hornet bullet, for sale on a couple website's.
But if I cant re supply..
I would rather work with what I can..
Fortunetly,, I still have some of my best for my rifle..
When I found the load, I bought slug's by the thousand..
If I can improve on that, I gladly will..
Thank's..
Jed.

I had alway's hoped for a Partition version, for the Hornet..
IMO, one of the best and most accurate bullet's ever designed..
I used to favor the 190gr Partition's, in the old 06..
A good load would beat the tar out of me,, but they usually found there mark well..
I could usually only handel about 25-30 of them , from a bench..
But never noticed them at all, when shooting at game..
Any more,, they get the 165 Gr Balistic tip's..
Much flatter shooting, and even more consistant in my 06's..
My Hornet,,, never liked them at all..
I do have some Combined Technology, 40 gr. Balistic Silver Tip's , to try and am looking much forward to that..
They dont have the extream boat tail as the standard's did..
It may work for me..

My daughters NEF loves the 40gr Nosler. I have not tried them yet. How many Nosler 45SB's do you have to be able to get to make it worthwile? Used for hunting 500 would last a long time unless you are going P.D hunting

5 a day x 168 day's a year - my not takeing the time to hunt???

But 500 would be about a start..
My delemia... I am not yet sure my rifle like's them..
It is what I had my guy trying to find, when I seen him haveing much difficulty..
It is why I got ahold of Nosler..
Myself, I would be supprised if they did not at least produce a small run, or possibly a new issue for the Hornet..
It has a big enough following..

All rifles are different for sure but I personally have never tried these that the did not do well. I thing I have a partial box of 50 gr SB from 25 years ago

I will shoot them in my Sako L46 custom rifle in .222 Rem. Unlike you I will test them just to see, just to know......just to get them out of my bullet cabinet!!

Jed,
First, let me appoligize for not understanding your original post. I thought you were interested in finding some of those bullets.
Secondly, I didn't make my post clear. I didn't mean to suggest you work up a load with those bullets.
What I meant to say was; I saw some of the bullets for sale at Sportman's Warehouse.
Max

Thank's Max:
No apology nessesary..
I Have loaded my Hornet sence new.. 20+ Year's or so.
I have really not tried anything new in it, for a very long time.
I hapened to be in a shop ,and spotted some powder and about 5 diferent slug's that looked good enough for a shot..
Was just hopeing, I could find the 45 gr. Nosler Hornet Bullet to try..
Then I found out it had been discontinued..
Not sure when..
But it's why they are scarce..
Jed.

Those little 35 gr Hornady V Max bullets are really something. So far they are the best in my CZ. If I were still a hunter I would be finding some Jack rabbits to introduce to the little bullet.

Oh, Yeah no Jacks in TN!! I miss the desert.

Great thread Vincent , I just got my first hornet and will definitely put the reloading info/tips to use as soon as I get enough brass.

Thanks

PM Me if You Think I Can Help

'Tis my pleasure!! PM me if I can help you in any way.

What Hornet did you get?

As stated we have two almost at opposite ends of the stick. My Dauthers NEF SuperLite and my CZ American. Before finding the CZ completely by chance I was seriously considering another NEF. The rifles are in expensive (Not Cheap, there is a difference) and shoot great. On the other end the CZ is a good gun for the money, my most accurate yet and quite pretty when you replace the 5 shot magazine hanging out of the bottom. I'll never afford a Cooper so for me this probably the best I can do.It is more than good enough.

Sorry for the quailty:


I hope you enjoy your Hornet as much as I do mine.

I got one of the Anschutz 1730's that CDNN had on sale, Not only my first Hornet but my first Anschutz as well .

According to other RFC members in the Anchutz forum this rifle has a .223 bore vs the .224 for most other current factory hornet rifles, That along with the fact that the 54 action is basically a beefy rimfire action may mean that I'll have to limit myself to certain bullets/powders when loading for it.

By the way those are some nice rifles you have there "Vincent" and "Max velocity" as well as the groups you guys are shooting , Hopefully I can get mine going pretty soon if I can just decide what type/Power scope to put on it .

That should be a great rifle. The CZ is supposed to be .2235 so it is half way between. It also is a 1-16 twist so it does not like long bullets. No sense in going past 45gr and it really prefers the 35-40 range. Okay with me because I have no use for heavy bullets in the Hornet.

Brass: The Winchester brass is much thicker than the Remington. I buy the brass 500 at a time from Midway. Was in the low sixty dollar range, has gone up to $68 I think. Of all my centerfire rifle only one has ever had a factory load shot in it. My .222 Sako L46, my Rem 788 22-250 (my first CF over 30 years ago, still have it) both of my Hornets, My Contenders I used to have, A .308 788 NONE of them have ever fired a factory load! Only my .243 Mod 700 Rem has had factory rounds and that was to get the brass. Bye the way if anyone has a .243 the Federal brass is the best and their 80gr cheapy loads are fine 1/2-3/4 MOA ammo in my rifle.

I'll try to get a better picture of the CZ in the morning. Thanks you guys it is great to talk Hornet.

I just purchased an Anschutz Exemplar 22 hornet, built on the left-hand 54 action. Is lil-gun a good powder to start with for the 10" barrel, or would something else be a little more appropriate?

I've got an RCBS die set coming, but think I should spring for the lee collet neck size die from what I'm reading here.

Also looks like I need to just hang onto my existing stock of .224 bullets - i've got nosler and hornady 50 grain, and berger moly coat 52 grain, used to load for my 22-250. Maybe some day I'll get me a 221 Fireball.. then I could probably use up the 50 grainers, eh?

here's the pic of the exemplar from the auction listing.. it's not in my hands just yet! Can't wait to try it out.. might have to place an order with midway for some components & dies!


Oh - and thanks to another member here, I found that Numrich had a replacement stock for the .22 hornet anschutz exemplar, so I've got a new one on the way! That'll give me one to use, and one to refinish, another of my hobbies.
