View Full Version : 22 Hornet to K-Hornet???

I have a Savage Hornet (stock standard) with which I am well pleased.

However ... I've been advised by Club members to get it K-ed. They cite an extra 150-200 fps extra plus longer brass life as reasons.

Question: I'm now getting sub-MOA groups with weighed handloads. Will having the Savage rechambered be deleterious to accuracy??? To me, I want to put the shots where I aim.

Of course, if there's no loss of accuracy, I'll consider going to a K.

Any opinions?

With the general caveat that any change in cartridge, loading, etc., can affect accuracy (for better or worse), the answer is that rechambering to K-Hornet should not adversely affect accuracy.
