thanks rod, that's a lot of detail. you've researched a fair bit.i actually have bought two magazines for my krico hornet . easy guy to deal with. i've got enough krico's for the moment, but i'm always on the lookout for anything rare and collectable. i had a weihrauch hw60j in 22 mag which had so many similarities to krico in design it's not funny. i think that's who krico turned into. very good qaulity rifles, fantastic triggers and very accurate. cheers mate

well, tried different factory ammo in the hornet and this is the result. wind was a bit gusty at times (played havoc with my 22 lr ) better groups are possible .hornady 35gr v-max shot best. winchester 35gr varmit x second rem 45gr hp and PPU tied for third . considering cost and the good brass, PPU is good value. dirtys the bore quickly though , this swan barrel has had about 100 rounds through it now, so hoping groups tighten further. bit more practice by the nut behind the trigger will help too. :thumbsup:

Alan has been doing work for me for 30 years. He is honest and does good work, now that his son is with him he is getting more organized and his 'office' work is better. He is busy and sometimes he needs a little push but he is generally very reliable. Give him a call and see what is the issue and I am sure he can accommodate you. He is one of the good guys.
