Winchesters 22 Hornet calibre, developed in 1932, is designed for varmints and target shooting to distances up to 200 metres. The bullets have the same mass as the 22 Long Rifle calibre and the same .224 inch bullet diameter. The difference is in the shape of the bullet and minor variations in the technical characteristics. The 22 Hornet calibre bullets are encapsulated, armoured or semi-armoured; their mass does not exceed 2.98 grams (46 grains). Winchester offers the 22 Hornet in a 2.92-gram (45-grain) Power Point bullet and a 2.98-gram (46-grain) Hollow Point bullet for accurate and effective long-range take-down of martens, stone martens, foxes and other varmints.
