Having a lot of fun with 9mm and rimfire these days.

Looking at a reloadable rimfire, yes that’s an oxymoron.

Is it easy to load? Looks really cheap to load.

Worth it over the HMR?

Looks fun.

What’s not to like about 3600 FPS...

The hornet in all its various forms is a great cartridge to reload. I recommend going with one of the offerings from CZ in the 17 hornet.

They are very cheap and easy to reload. I personally have a CZ 22 hornet and there is an almost 22lr like nostalgia to the Hornet for me. Also a great caliber for new shooters when getting them behind a centerfire as there is very little recoil but it produces excellent results on reactionary targets, pudding cups from the dollar store being a favorite.

K Hornet is even better. Super easy to reload and shoot.
I’m not too familiar with some of the many 17 offerings.

I’d love to hear more about this one.

Right now I’m eye drilling over a ruger 77/17. In the 17 hornet.
