Hello All
Some of you may have seen me on other boards, but most of the handles I see are new to me, so first I would like to say you have a wonderful site.

I too own a 5-7 IOM.

I shot it today in fact, and every time I fire it I like it more.

Ive been lurking here and Ive seen no mention of anybody tryin the Double Hollowpoints by Jim Calhoon. They area available in 30 and 37 grain weights.

Ive used his bullets in 17 and 19 calibers and have found them as accurate as anything else.


It is where I plan on beginning my reloading adventure with this round.

Hmmm... this is the first I've heard of James Calhoon's bullets. Could be that I have very little experience in small caliber rifle reloading.

I would want to take a look at the diameter and length of his 30 grain bullets before buying a whole bunch, but they sound like they just might work. Let us know how it works for you!

I've been using the Calhoun 30 grainers in my 22 Hornet for a few years.I shoot them in a Ruger 77/22 Hornet.THe bullets are very accurate.I have shot many sub 1" groups @100yds with it.They are extremly explosive on ground squirrels.

Tacticalreload-I know I have a few loose bullets laying around.I'm in the process of setting up my workshop,but when I finish,I'll mic the bullets and give you the diameter and length.
