Just got a call from Quality Cartridge, and they are starting to make 22 CCM cases ( they had someone making them from 22 Hornet cases before, but that guy retired ) but now they are going to start making them, themselves, so they'll be available again... I just put in an order for 500 more cases
or thinking about this one, but machining off the top of the block to remove the gas check & lighten the bullet some, or just machine the gas check recess out of each mold cavity making it closer to a 50 grain bullet

Payment sent today... about what my BFR cost to do all the work on this one... but thinking I’m gonna like it... talked to Zane, thinking a ram horn blank is likely to get my name on it, when they become available

Payment received & UPS label printed... guessing with the holiday weekend this coming, I won't see it until next Tuesday... but getting ready to fill some of those cases I bought from Quality Cartridge...
MWM, while your looking check out the Lyman 225438, I’ve been using one for a few years for the Hornet. Hopefully this all sparks some interest in the MiHec 227640 Hornet in the group buy section, that will be a dandy.
Didn’t know it was discontinued, bummer. If I ever find a second one, I will send it off to Erik Ohlen for a hollow point conversion. Looks to me like he does real nice work, and has a good web site at Hollow Point Bullet Mold Service.
