Can not believe you had problems with a CZ. and I would agree with 222.rem

Also throw a suppressor on it. Makes it sound like a 22lr. Dave

Nothing against a 222, its a great round but you already have a 223 and there just isn't that much difference in the two.

Yes i had 2 diff 527 17Hornets, 1st a Varmint model, that didnt have many problems, but it started heavily rusting for no reason and idk what was up with the stock, but it was terrible and seemed it was made of balsa wood, the thing would get scratches just looking at it....The 2nd was an American, and that just would not feed from the magazine no matter what ammo was used. It was sent back to CZ, when i got it back it was better but still had issues feeding/ejecting....so the 527 has left a sour taste in my mouth.

There are little tricks you can do to make the CZ 527 17 Hornets feed considerably better.

When cycling a round up into the chamber, as you push the bolt forward don't use the bolt handle, push it forward with your thumb behind the firing pin shroud. I have two CZ 17 Hornets, one feeds fine the other I have to push forward with my thumb, like I described, then it feeds perfect.

Sometimes lifting up on the bolt handle as you push the bolt forward helps cure the problem too.

I don't see mentioned what you plan to do with the 22H. Short-range predator rifle? High volume varmint shooter? Etc? I've got a Savage Model 40 single shot 22H that I use for sage rat shooting. Little bit heavy so it works great when not moving around a ton and doing high volume shooting. Also have a CZ527 American 22H. It is considerably lighter than that savage and works great to carry around all day. Both of them love the 35gr factory Hornady vmax loads and are very accurate. Fun round but in all honesty I like the 17H even better. Much more range and seems to hit harder, further.

Will be using new rifle to call from a treestand or blind at night, mostly red/grey fox, raccoons and we now have coyotes on camera...As far as the rifle feeding, I dont feel i should have to operate a $700 rifle a specific way, it should just work.

Yes, the Hornet is a good choice.

Remington, Winchester, Hornaday, Sellier & Belloit, Federal, all make ammo for it.

As for finding it on a store shelf, if you can't find it, order it.

If you stand on one foot, jump up and down twice, turn a circle to the left, then it will feed just fine. LOL, I feel the same way as you. No matter the cost, it should work the way its suppose to. I might tend to agree with some wildcat rounds like an Ackley but not a factory round in a rifle chambered/built for that round.

Been doing that for years with my CZ's.

Sad to say it but it may just be the nature of the beast. If that's what it take to make it function correctly, you may just have to do it that way. It may not be that big of a deal once you get used to doing it that way. Rimfires and 223's are the only CZ's I've messed with and never had any feeding issues.

Very disappointing when a rifle doesnt function, especially in the heat of the moment...I have no problem ordering ammo, none of the calibers Ive been researching are readily available in my area on shelves.

I also have the Browning Micro Hunter in a .22 Hornet...plenty of Factory Ammo available for it here in Southeast Missouri I'm thinking I have the 35 grain Hornady Ammo?I'll look and see what it is...I do know it has the ballistic red tips and is very accurate!
