I have one of the bolt action ruger hornets with laminate stock and stainless barrel/action. Trigger could be better, I put a lighter spring in if from 22/77.
I handload for it and it is the one rifle that I have not been too successful getting accuracy from. It likes 40-45 bullets better than 50 grainers or above.
I will admit to not having made any new handloads since the 90s. I made so much ammo then that I am still shooting it in most of my guns.
I do intend to try something I read a few years ago when Ross Seyfried was writing for one of the gun magazines. He recommends using small pistol primers instead of small rifle primers for accuracy. Makes sense since the round is fairly low pressure.
