Picked up a couple Hornady 22 boxes in Abiline at the cartridge show.
Didn’t know Hornady made 22’s
I don’t know when they started making .22’s but they have been making the .17 rimfires for quite some time.
Nice looking boxes.
They introduced these .22’s in mid 2018, but they are not listed in any catalogs, so maybe it was a small run to test the market. They seem to be easier to find in Europe than in the US.
The word is Hornady is only marketing these outside of the United States, at least for the time being, since they feel the US .22rf market is saturated with .22rf manufacturers.
Brian, thanks, that explains everything. I also saw them for sale in Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
