I have an xp-100 that I have been holding onto for a project. I've also always liked the 22 hornet but until today never really thought about it in the xp. Pacific Tool makes a remington bolt with a hornet boltface. So, is it possible to get a tiny hornet case to feed from the single shot trough?
Rimmed cases can pose a feeding issue.
Years ago someone posted one on here they had built. Don't remember for sure who it was. If I remember correctly it shot pretty good.
Edit, it was Bruce aka XP-100. See link to post.
22 Hornet XP-100
An easier, but less unique, option is the original XP chambering, the .221 Fireball.

Thanks everyone. Yes, I am thinking about the 221 or maybe the 222 but would really like the hornet if it could be made to work.
PTG will make you a bolt
If a guy was really lucky he could find one of the Anschutz pistols built in 22 Hornet.
