I like how the deer made it look like an accident.

They must have been hunting for something smaller than deer (unless there's a very small type of deer in Czech Republic); 22 caliber is too small to drop a deer unless you're a really good shot and can place that shot in an exact location. . Maybe hunting birds, wild pigs, or some other rodents.

22 is fun for filling up beer cans with water and shooting them. Hours of fun . But yeah too small for a humane deer hunt. Deer will steal corn if I forget to put the lid back on the corn container. I have found this out several times.

We are not talking about a garden variety .22, but the .22 Hornet.

Cartridge --- Muzzle-Energy:
.22 Short --- 87 lbf
.22 Long Rifle --- 137 lbf
10mm Auto --- 680 lbf
.22 Hornet --- 732 lbf
.30 Carbine --- 977 lbf

From left to right: .22 Short, .22 Long Rifle, .22 Winchester Magnum, .22 Hornet:

Yeah, the hunter may have been after some other game, unless those Czech deer are tiny. Even .22 Hornet is pretty sketchy for most deer, although some loads might do in good hands. But my great-granddad successfully hunted Texas mule deer and whitetails with a Marlin lever action rifle chambered in .32 convertible, for .32 centerfire and .32 rimfire. Presumably he used the .32 long.

I took care of my granddad's guns after he got too tired and test fired that rifle in every caliber -- they still had old functional cartridges. Not much pop, even out of a rifle, especially with plain lead bullets. I sure wouldn't choose even the .32 long for anything larger than a rabbit or small pests unless I was very close for quick follow up shots. I'm betting great-granddad anchored them with enough lead to weigh 'em down, or patiently tracked the poor critters until they collapsed.

Interesting... due to change in cartridge diameter, that Hornet requires a rather specific barrel, no doubt.

Will a Magnum work in any .22 rifle? .22 LR are pretty common.

No. The case is not only longer, but also larger in diameter.

The Magnum looks to be the same diameter... the Hornet appears larger in diameter... unless they are labeled wrong.

Another case of '20s technology far surpassed by modern ammo. Never legal for military use except for "survival rifles for food" for downed pilots. Not legal for deer in many states.
