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.
Rated 2 out of 5 by baxtermonalisa not comparable to 180gr. corelkt
After 3-shots at a little over 50yds. out of dad's old '59 30-06 REM sprgfld. hit. with-in 11/2 in of bulls-eye with 180gr, standard(wicked) loads. 3 shots fired with 125gr. recoil-managed loads were all 6-10in. high and off wind-age 3-4in. right.
Pity, because it took alot of talking for him (83 yrs. young) to try them. I believe that the twist torque out of the old barrel does play a factor even if bullet speed is the same or comparable.
Too bad because his shoulder is always blue although he still enjoys it. Hah

Not the most economical ever but they had it. Product looks good. Will shoot a couple of rounds when it warms up. Should be just fine for home defense.

I use the 180 Grain 30-06 with my Savage Axis and love shoting this gun at long distances. Have not learned how reload them yet.

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.
