Default Re: Back to the .22 Hornet

I just resized and primed the empty cases I shot yesterday, and need to report that 4 of the 5 cases for the Hornady HANDLOADS with 10.8 grains of Accurate No.9, had 'blown' primer pockets. Before 'you' assume that the charges were too hot, let me remind you that ALL of the cartridges were loaded with that same charge. Furthermore, the 35 grain Nosler Ballistic Tips have a significantly longer bearing surface, and they had no blown primer pockets. I THINK the issue was that the cases with the Hornady 35-grain V-Max's had been fired more times than the others. Also, the Dogtown and Speer bullets were 34 and 33 grains respectively, so they shouldn't have had the same pressure as the 35-grainers. Nevertheless, I am going to drop the charge to 10.7 grains.

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:32

"We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful." ~ C.S. Lewis.
