I tried for .22 Hornet, using Red Dot powder I got the speed down to about 1,300 fps but couldn't quite achieve sub sonic. I never got the chance to try Trailboss powder which is supposed to be better, being bulkier. There is quite a lot of info on the "Cast bullits" web site.

Is this a velocity issues or a bullet whaight issue

the lack of speed is causeing stability issues...i had some factory sub ammo in 308 once. i got it from the guy in perth he has a few old boxes of it

It could be the jacketed bullets causing the problem. You might want to try cast lead bullets.
