    FastLeo, here's an article Beagle wrote on the Hornet. It pretty much covers what works and what doesn't. It was a big help to me. You can find Beagle's article here. His work was with a 14 twist Ruger 77/22. Twist rate and how fast...

    Tradition is 1 in 12 or maybe 14 for a caliber like the 222. But if you're running 52 grain jacketed @ 3,200 fps, or 70 grain cast at 1,700 fps are there pro and cons to a faster twist with either bullet. Like maybe the fact that casting 22's...
