We have been huge advocates for the 22 Creedmoor ever since we chambered our first rifle for the wildcat cartridge in 2014. We are pleased to announce a partnership with Peterson Cartridge in the release of 22 Creedmoor brass. The head-stamped brass will be sold in 50-count boxes or a 500-ct bulk pack. The 22 […]
While the 22 Creedmoor has been a popular topic of discussion in the predator hunting world for many years, it’s just now becoming more mainstream. At Horizon Firearms, we built our first 22 Creedmoor back in mid-2014. We’ve seen the interest in this wildcat caliber grow every year since. If you type “22 Creedmoor” into […]
We get a lot of questions about the 22 Creedmoor. At shows, folks often stop and ask about why we like it so much. Typically they’re comparing it against the 220 Swift… “My 220 Swift shoots 4,000–.” When it comes to the “right caliber” debate, you’ll get 13 different opinions from 10 different people. The 22 […]
A couple of us from Horizon Firearms had the opportunity to spotlight a couple weekends ago and we decided to field test one of our new exciting calibers – the 22 Creedmoor.
Austin Ratliff swept the light through the darkness and landed on a bright set of eyes low to the ground about 150 yards away. It wasn’t moving, and we studied it for quite a while and became pretty that it was a bobcat sitting very, very still. He obviously didn’t want to give himself away and was observing us from a low to the ground position. We flipped on the FoxPro and he sat up confirming that he was indeed a bobcat. Austin readied the 22 Creedmoor and shot just below the eyes. The cat immediately fell – he’d made a great shot. We quickly drove over there to check it out and couldn’t believe what we found. We’ve hunted our entire lives, but never seen this!
This past month, Team HorizonFirearms and ZEROlight got the opportunity to enter the Gillette, Wyoming, coyote contest which is an annual contest in which 25-50 teams of 2 hunters compete over a 23 hour period to see who can harvest the most coyotes. Four coyotes per team are weighed to determine the winner for the heaviest set. This year, I decided to fly up to hunt with my business partner, Hazer Bulkley. After flying into Gillette a day early, we made sure our rifles were sighted in and practiced shooting off of round hay bales on 3.5” targets out to 400 yards.
