Shoot a box of Remington Core-Lokt Centerfire ammo to see why it has remained the leader in centerfire deer ammo for more than six decades. The original controlled-expansion bullet design, Core-Lokt ammo remains one of the most effective hunting cartridges ever developed. A progressively tapered copper jacket is locked to a solid lead core to promote a perfectly controlled expansion and high weight retention upon impact.

These cartirdge will shoot but not as good in my 30-06 as my Hornady. Take careful shots and these bullets will take down any whitetail quickly.

I only use this round to hunt with. 30-06 180 grain pointed soft point. I have shot plenty of deer with this round and 99% of the time they drop in there tracks. i did have one instance where i could not recover a deer. I pushed the limits of my rifle and this round, made a +300 yard shot that seemed to be a good shot. the doe ran for over a half mile before i found a blood trail. never recoverd that doe. felt bad and relized that this mistake was 100% my own fault. taken quite a few hogs too and never had a problem. this is not a 1000 yard round in my opnion but it is very veritile for my aplication of 100 yard hunting.

THe large majority of deer I've been involved in trying to recover after being wounded were shot with Remington Core - Lokts , in calibers from .30-.30 Winchester through 7mm Remington Mag. Most of the rest were hit with the old Winchester aluminum capped Silvertip. Spring for a few extra dollars and get Remington's Core - Lokt Ultra Bonded , or the Winchester Ballistic Silvertip loaded with Nosler -Winchester Combined Technology bullets. Or anything by Hornady/Frontier with their Interlock bullets.$.50 to $.75 per round is nothing to a lost animal, and if you really do practice that much handloading these bullets is the way to go.

i am not an ammunition expert by any means,but the 22 hornet being an exceptional varmint caliber is not a common caliber that a lot of people use making the manufacture of a small supply of these cartridges a lot more expensive to make and distribute thus driving up the retail cost.
The 22 hornet cartidge has been around for a long timeand people tend to want the latest and greatest round available, which is now the .17 HMR. Which is making the 22 hornet a "rare" cartridge. And with most things...rare=expensive. just my theory
More than likely it is because most manufacturers box them in 50 round quantities(compared to most everything else being 20 round). But it is also a "odd" round and they are usually a little more expensive in general.
22 hornet is expensive when compared to 22LR but not if you compare if to other center fire cartridges. look at the performance between the cartridges and you'll get a good idea that the 22s are not i the same category of performance.
