I thought the same until my gunsmith told me to start by loading the 36 grain .22 Varmint Grenades to touch the lands. Ultimately got them to shoot best at .005 in my Sako 14 twist 22-250. I went from 3+ inch groups at .050 off the lands to about 1/2 inch groups by spending an afternoon working with seating depths close to, or into, the lands. Took less effort than finding the sweet spot for VLDs.

Great bullet up to 150 yards on large pdogs. they have the BC of a granite boulder.

I hated them.
