Fireforming to 22 K-hornet
I bought this brass because it was the only brass available. I had to fireform this brass into my K-hornet chamber. The first 100 split 25 out of 100. Next tried the "redneck anneal" (stand in pan of water and hit neck area with propane torch for 4-seconds, then tip over into water). I only lost 5 out of 100. I have a friend with a professional case annealing machine so should try that.

I should add that I lost around 1 or 2 out of 100 Winchester cases so actually this PPU brass isn't that bad. A case in the hand beats 1000 on back order. I bought loaded ammo at Cabela's and pulled the bullets and had good luck with that also. At least it's brass I can get! I will buy more for sure!
Anneal before fireform then Ok
I fireformed 100 cases to K-hornet right out of the bag and lost 25 to split necks. Next 100, I annealed necks and lost only 5. Winchester or Remington, lost 1 out of 100 after anneal. Fireform load was 9 gr. IMR4227 and Bator 52 gr cast bullet (FYI, your results may vary).

Fire Forming to 17 Hornet
This 22 Hornet brass Looks great all around with uniform wall thickness, primer pockets are nice and tight, even after a extremely warm fire forming load. Do not recomend the warm fire forming load though I do recommend this brass. As mentioned in other reviews annealing before fire forming proves to be a necessity, preventing split shoulders and necks. Great Value for the dollar in todays market IMHO

Fireforming to .22 K Hornet
As Sean H stated in his review the brass is very hard as received so annealing is essential. I've fireformed 200 PPU cases to K Hornet with no split necks. The Hornady Annealing Kit makes annealing a snap.

The PPU .22 Hornet brass also gives excellent accuracy due to its consistent construction.
Working with PPU 22 Hornet Brass
I reload for both 22 Hornet and 17 Ackley Hornet. With the shortage of US made Hornet brass I decided to try the PPU brass.

First, the walls are thicker than US made brass, which the Hornet can benefit from. The necks are also uniform thickness and did not need to neck turn this brass.
It is harder brass as delivered, so for folks loading for 22 K-Hornet and particularly 17 Ackley Hornet I strongly suggest annealing the case neck area before resizing and fire forming. After sizing a few cases for standard Hornet, I decided to anneal all the brass. I lost NO cases to splitting even for forming operations needed for 200 rounds of 17 Ackley Hornet cases.
PPU 22 Hornet Brass
I loaded it as 22 Hornet and it worked fine. PPU brass comes 'two-tone', tumble it and it looks much better.
