  1. Rimless hornet

    Wildcat Cartridges
    Has anyone ever heard of a rimless hornet? It seems like it'd be a nice cartridge for small game, and just a good woods gun. More power than a lease but yet still be able to squeeze alot of ammo in a small space. Or how about a .25 mag? Should be about the same size.

    Wildcat Cartridges
    Hello I have a .22 mag hand gun and rifle and love them. They're great for small game and a jam jar will last all year hunting. Only problem is reloading doesn't go to well.
