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.

      I’ve got a hankering for a 22 Hornet(or possibly a 17). I’ve been wanting something more than a 22 mag but don’t like how the wind effects HMR. For some reason, I keep coming back to the Hornet. I will mostly shoot targets with the occasional groundhog, but do plan for a Prairie dog hunt sometime in the future  
      I like the looks of the Ruger 77 but keep reading bad reviews and that it would need to be sent to CPC. 
      I'm not big on a CZ, mostly because of the magazine hanging down. 
      Thoughts on a Hornet? If I go 22, do I need a K chamber? 17 better or worse? Which rifle?

      Has anyone seen/held/shot one of these?  Looks like a Marlin Papoose clone.  It looks easier to handle than a Henry Survival Rifle.  It can be found cheaper than the other two.  Is it the gun to fill a need that's just not there???  
       
      Happy Thanksgiving to all!

      I am thinking of purchasing a new deer rifle. Everyone is telling me to get a 6.5 Creedmoor. If you have any experience with the 6.5, please tell me why everyone is so stuck on the Creedmoor. 
      I am an old school 06 kind of man. Weatherby Vanguard 2 is said to be guaranteed to hold 1" at 100 yards. 
      Want to stay under $1,000.00 for rifle and scope. Also what scope would you purchase?
