Just acquired a hornet and cannot find in the rules that it cannot be used for small game. I know it can be used for hogs and deer (judiciously.) My thoughts would be that if hand loaded with lighter cast boolits and faster pistol powder, it would be a good game getter for hard times. 3.5 gr of unique and a cast 40 gr boolit, you would get 2000 rds. out of a pound of powder and 175 boolits out of a pound of lead. It would take 11.5 pounds or there abouts of lead to make up the 2000 boolits. Just my thoughts. Help me out with the legalities of the hornet.
