Load data for caliber ".22 Hornet"
The .22 Hornet is a small yet powerful rifle cartridge developed in the early 1930s by Winchester. It was designed for use on small to medium size game, such as coyote, fox, bobcat and woodchuck, and has become one of the most popular rimfire cartridges in North America.

The .22 Hornet is highly accurate with low recoil and minimal muzzle flash, making it well-suited for hunting applications where stealth and accuracy are paramount. Additionally, its thin case walls allow it to accept light loads when reloading which makes it ideal for those who prefer lower impacts and reduced noise.

The Commission internationale permanente pour l'épreuve des armes à feu portatives ("Permanent International Commission for the Proof of Small Arms" – commonly abbreviated as C.I.P.) is an international organisation which sets standards for safety testing of firearms. (The word portatives ("portable") in the name refers to the fact the C.I.P. tests small arms almost exclusively; it is ordinarily omitted from the English translation of the name.) As of 2015, its members are the national governments of 14 countries, of which 11 are European Union member states. The C.I.P. safeguards that all firearms and ammunition sold to civilian purchasers in member states are safe for the users.
To achieve this, all such firearms are first proof tested at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses. The same applies for cartridges; at regular intervals, cartridges are tested against the C.I.P. pressure specifications at the ammunition manufacturing plants and at C.I.P. accredited Proof Houses.
