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.

My Dad was hunting in Montana back in the 1960's with some "Special Handloads" that an Air Force buddy of his loaded. My dad missed a couple easy shots that day and was dumbfounded. He went back to camp and took a site in shot on a tin can and he said it looked like he shot it with bird shot. He went to the truck and found two Remington Factory Loads and went back out. First shot he had an antelope buck on the ground.
I always remembered that story when I am buying rounds for my guns. I have never had a mis fire, never had an animal go to far. Remington can't do anything about poor shooting but in my opinion they manufacture ammo just as good or better than anyone else when it comes to hunting rounds.
That is all I have to say.

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.
