Cheers for that. :thumbup:
As I mentioned earlier, I am going to apply for variations, to hopefully get slots for both .22 Hornet & .223.
That's if my budget will stretch to both.... :think:

From experience if you can only choose one, get a .223.

Yep. Will probably go for the .223 first off.
There appear to be lots of decent ones out there, both new and second hand.
Whereas finding a decent HW66 or CZ Hornet, seem to be as rare as hens teeth. :(

Reading between the line's on this thread there is a shortage of amo/cases for the .22 hornet, along with a shortage of .17 hornet stuff, this needs to be taken into consideration before buying either.
