Smokeless Hornet is a close relative to the older BP 22 WCF. Whelen tinkered with smokeless versions of the WCF in the 20's but when introduced in the 30's it had a slightly larger head and base diameter than it's parent...... probably to keep the "hotter"(relative term) Hornet out of the older chamber.
