Default Re: Winchester M43 22 Hornet

My take on the hornet is all about case prep and bullet seating.
It is real easy round to jibber up the bullet seating - noticeable by the bulge in the case neck being a little one-sided. So my advise, take it or leave it, is to trim all cases to your preferred length set up a neck flare die and pop a little bell on the neck to ease the bullet seating then finish with a lee FCD die. I have not had much problem with powders - only using lilgun at present as it appears to perform without too much worry regarding charge weight.
