Ah, but what a fun old fossil the Hornet is! Having owned more .22CF's than any sane man needs in his life- from the Swift down to the Hornet- if I were to re-enter that game, I would snatch up a Hornet. I have a little BSA Martini single shot action patiently waiting its turn to be built into something, undoubtedly a .22 Hornet or K-Hornet.
Long ago and far away, I had an uncle who killed a passel of deer with a 340 .22Hornet. In the hands of a cool shot, a Hornet can do a lot that belies its size- with a lot less sturm und drang.
