Which 22 cal for 90 grain bergers??

I was looking at the different berger bullets on their website today, and the 90 grain 22 bullet got me thinking. I shoot the 105 vld hunting bullet right now in a 6x47 lapua. The 90 grain 22 bullet has a higher BC than all of the 6mm bullets even the 115's. So would the 22 cal bullet buck the wind better than the 6mm bullets? With a higher BC and being smaller it should shoot faster which makes me think it would. Would a 22x47 be able to hande the 90 grainer? Or a 22-250AI? Would I be able to seat the bullets out enough on a factory 22-250 remington action? Or would it be better to go to a 22-243 or something bigger? I've been thinking about the 22-250AI for awhile, but don't know how well it would work with the 90 grainer. Is anybody running them? How do you like them and what are you shooting them in?

Thanks, Daniel
