Just looking for real information not "there are better choices IMO".
I did run the numbers, and they support the information in my original post.
The numbers also calculate to 190" drop at 1,000, not 149".
Taking your numbers, and comparing the data against one of my 6mm's, you fall short on drift at 1,000 by 1.25 moa.
500 yards and under your .22 cal will be fine. Stretch that out to 800-1000 yards, and your .22 cal will fall short on drift.
Also consider that barrel life on a .22-6 something will be significantly shorter, and that the .22-6 something will certainly be more difficult to develop an accurate load for.
Take a look at the line on any 600 or 1,000 yd match and count how many .22 cal comp rifles you see. There's a reason for that.
That is your "real information", and in my opinion, one of the 6mm's is a better choice for your intended purpose...
