Hello from sunny south florida! How is weather in Belgium? (Bright clear blue skies and 62 degrees farenheit here, but will probably be back to normal heat by tomorrow!)

Shoot for the moon! Getting older may be inevitable, but acting your age appears to be optional ....

Welcome to the CBA forum.

I shot a similar bullet to NOE 22570rn in CBA competition with some success in the 1980's.  In my opinion this is one of the best cast bullet designs for the 22 bore with two BIG IFS.  1. If the twist rate of the rifle is fast enough to stabilize this longer bullet. A twist of one in ten inches will work, anything slower is iffy at best. 2. If the bullet's nose has land engraving marks after seating and the front band shows good contact. 

I wrote a report on this bullet for Fouling Shot #231 (Oct/Nov 2014) and found it easy to get AVERAGE five shot groups of about one minute of angle in a lightweight Tikka T3 with an eight inch twist.  I would be happy to send you a digital copy of that issue so you can see what our journal looks like if you will send me a PM with your email address.

As far as powders, I have had good luck with this bullet for velocities from 1,400 to 1,800 fps with a variety of fast and medium burning pistol or shotgun powders, including Bullseye, TiteGroup, 5744, 2400, and Blue Dot. I would expect any clean burning powder with similar burn rates in that range to work well -- see the similar burn rate lists by Hodgdon, Western, and others.

I have no interest in higher velocity, but invariably less accuracy loads, so have no information based on personal experience there. Others may be able to help.

I think you will have better luck starting with soft alloys (25:1 to wheelweight) than hard.
