thanks Knobb. Ive tried all these bullets and they work fine up to 3600 at which the speer wont get to paper @ 100yrds. Although the A-Max shoots well up to 4000 its light const. wont penitrate over 8 in. in wet media. So far the 60 gr. Nosler hasnt given any problems but I would prefer a heavier game type bullet. The LTB bullets from Berger shoot extremly well out to 500yrds.but again their light const. jackets limit what you can do... Good Shooting.........

You should try the Lost river ballistics bullet. Their website is http://www.lostriverballistic.com
You can also try the HV bullet from http://gscustom.co.za/ I think you will find just what you are looking for with either of these two companies.
I have not tried bullets from them yet as I just got back into reloading this summer. I do plan on trying both come this winter when I have more money and time.
Hey B'rest. I've wanting to have a 22CHEETAH MKI built and have the same questions. It looks like the nearly $2 a bullet LR's are about it in the "premium" bullet for the heavy 22 cal.
What are you planning on using your rifle for. Here in central MS, the average whitetail doe is about #120. I want mine to be a mid to long range doe rifle. Most folks argue that the 22's aren't enough gun... IMHO a well placed 69 gr LR's slug would hit em like a sledge hammer!

RWS makes a 74 gr. cone point hunting bullet in 22 cal for their 5.6x57 RWS cartridge. Old Western Scrounger has them. I hunt blackbuck and deer with them. They are very tough and require a quick twist barrel. Interestingly, the 5.6x57 RWS rifles are usually listed as havingg a 1:10 twist rate? Maybe the odd shape of the bullet lets it stabilize at a slower twist????
