The original Hornet cartridges used a bullet that was .001" smaller than the rest of the .22's - .223" versus .224". This can cause accuracy problems as rifles have been built with both the normal .22 diameter bore and the smaller Hornet diameter. Looked on the Sierra web site and they list the Hornet seperately with both .223" and .224" diameter bullets.

The Hornet is a great choice for a short range varminter, and the various "improved" versions really are an improvement over the original - just make sure you use bullets that match your barrel diameter.
