    I bought one of those in 22 hornet beautiful gun and shot great, it was a pain to reload for with fat fingers.
    I got rid of it went 22 mag cheaper back then to shoot and kills just as good.
    Expensive little guns when they first came out.

    I loaded up 100 .22 Hornets last week, and had no problem with handling the small cases. Since we can't use our .22 Hornets for hunting Squirrels (State equipment Regulations), I just use my .22 Hornet for shooting targets and water filled plastic milk cartons. Back in Indiana, I used my Hornet as my "Go-To" Squirrel rifle, with my light loads of SR-4759 powder (7.0 GRS.) with a 50 grain "High Velocity" bullet. An excellent non-destructive load. Now, since I live here in KY I use my CZ-452 or my other .22 LR rifles and sometimes my .410-3" single shot H&R shotgun.

    Cabela's has the savage 93 for 229.00. Is that a pretty good rifle
