Default barrel twist

I believe that a twist similar to a 22LR would be better for a subsonic 17 cal. 22.5 gr. If I wanted to make a new rifle it would be only for lead bullets. I would not shot these bullet in my favorite 17 cal. which I want it to shoot close to max. speed. If you shoot a squirrel with a 4000 fps bullet it leave nothing for you to eat.

What would you do if you could not buy bullets? I find it a challenge to make my dies, reamers, and special items. My reloader kit was in the late '80's and I had requests from people to make them one. If we had to head for the hills I would grab me ammo kit which would have 20 cal. bullets, primers, powder and my reloading kit.
