Default I'd agree for 17s and 20s

But maybe not 22s. There's just so much out there in .224. I stopped at my local shop on my home today, and they had some .204, no .172, and literally an entire shelf of .224 bullets, from 35 gn. To 88s. Since I've about settled on the 22 Grendel, I grabbed a box of 88gn. ELDM, to set on my bench and inspire me to start ordering stuff to put this rifle together. Tell you what, that is one sexy bullet, I think I'm going to enjoy sending a few of them downrange father than I've played before.

Lessons learned should be the motto of last 2 or 3 years, stuff is getting a little easier BUT this will happen again dont bank on going to the store and counting on the bullet your after being on the shelf or ordering what you want no matter if its 22 cal or not.

Ken: Hornady still has the 50 grain V-max, last time I looked. Also Hammer bullets ( Good, but kind of pricey) have a 51 & 52 grain one, in copper.

Hammers are Expensive! I dont think i would use a solid copper bullet on sage rats.

I use a few ( due to cost) mostly NTX, Nosler LF, but some also i.e. Hammer due to lead ban in my Kommie Kalifornia law.
