Nice ! I'll bet that .22 Hornet is a lot of fun to shoot. Too bad they don't make them like that anymore.

Thank you Sir.

It is a lot of fun, I like it for groundhogs, a lot quieter than a .22/250. :wink:

Browning/FN is suppose to start making the pre-64 style M-70 again.

Varmits

I have took more than a few groundhogs with the ought six. The recoil is stiiff because of the pitch of the stock. Muzzle blast is sharp also. :plugears:I hand load 130 grain bullets for groundhog. They shoot more accurately than lighter bullets I have tried and takes the head completely off. :biglaugh: :dancingbananna:
