I guess the "rimmed" cartridge of the 22 hornet just didn't feed as well in the pump and lever guns.

You probably ought to just start loading reduced load .223 and call it a day ;)

You're probably right. I could do that as I reload both. I probably have four or five platforms that shoot the 22 Hornet, but always looking for interesting platforms in the 22 Hornet. Currently, I have revolver, bolt actions, break barrel, and combination platforms. You know how it is... we always need one more!

Rimmed cartridges feed fine, as proven by the 303 Savage, 22HP, and the ever popular 30-30.

Winchester did chamber the model 65 lever rifle in 218 Bee, which is more or less an improved 22 Hornet. That is as close as you’re going to get unless you have access to a machine shop.

I guess I had forgotten about the 30-30 and I own one.

      RICE LAKE, Wis., July 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Henry Repeating Arms Company announced that it is voluntarily recalling all H015-series Single Shot Rifles and Single Shot Shotguns manufactured prior to July 1, 2020.  Henry has recently discovered a potential safety issue wherein, under certain conditions, it is possible that some of these models may discharge without the trigger being pulled if the hammer is partially cocked and released. To prevent the possibility of death or serious personal injury, you should immediately stop using all H015-series Single Shot Rifles and Single Shot Shotguns and not load or fire them until they have been upgraded.

      I'm new to the Nashville area & we'll be staying here for a while. My mother has her father's Mauser from the war that she's going to have to give up in the near future, they'll be at her door on September 1st when the license expires. Looking around I know there's a set of steps we both need to complete to ship the rifle down here. Is it possible in the next month to get all the paperwork & legalities to acquire the rifle. It would be coming from the Bronx. I'm assuming I need a license & proper paperwork to do the transfer. I know google is my friend & I read a few topics here but in the interest of time, I'd like to have my grandfather's rifle in my possession without doing a crash course in this topic, 3 days already. Thanks in advance.

      Remember the Somalian poacher's rifle I posted about a year or so back?
