    Sako Gamehead are good as are cheap old Privi Partisan in 55g. I wouldn't recommend anything 50g Vmax unless sticking to head and neck shots as they're fairly messy.

    + one with paul at B, the soft points and the hollow points work well.
    If you are buying factory ammo, the federal powershock use the same projectiles.

    For my 222 and 223 I load Hornady 55 grain SP with cannelure #2266 which are about the cheapest .224 expanding bullet available, I'm currently paying £14.50 per box.
    Hornady Manufacturing Company :: Bullets :: Rifle :: Choose by Caliber :: .224 22 CAL :: 22 Cal .224 55gr SP with cannelure

    In 223 I use Viht N120 and worked up to a load of 20.5 grains (just under max) which is very accurate in my 1-9 twist SGC Straight pull M16 clone and my mates Remmy 700
