Huh ? Are you saying same POI of same POA at 25 & 50 ? Are you zeroed in for 40 or something ?
Extremely accurate HV shoots flatter at varying distances in my experience.

There is a very slight rise from 25 to 50 yards with the SK and AE, with some hitting the same POI at 25 to 50. The rise with the RWS was more pronounced and I believe it shoots at a higher velocity. Depends on the ammo.

I am surprised at the ballistic report I just got.

I went on Federal's web site https://www.federalpremium.com/ballistics-calculator and ran the closest data I could to the RWS load. Putting in a 50 yard zero, the calculator showed zero at 25 yards too.
Load Number 510 null
Load Number AE5022 null
Caliber 22 LR
Bullet Style Lead Round Nose Bullet Weight (grains) 40 grs
G1 Ballistic Coefficient .139 Muzzle Velocity 1,240 fps
Sight Height 1.5 in Zero Range 50 yd
Temperature 59 įF Wind Speed 10 mph
Altitude 0 feet Max Range 150 yd
RANGE (YD) DROP (IN) WIND DRIFT (IN) VELOCITY (FPS) ENERGY (FT-LB)
0 -1.5 0.0 1240 137
25 0.0 0.4 1165 121
50 0.0 1.4 1103 108
75 -1.8 3.0 1052 98
100 -5.6 5.1 1011 91

Are you guys talking about the RWS "Field Line" HVHP ?
The ones I have are plated. And if you buy them through SG Ammo, they aren't that expensive. $23.95 a for a brick of 500.
I bought some to try as I had also ordered some RWS Subsonic Lead HP.
The RWS HVHP is pretty close to CCI Mini-Mags in accuracy and consistency.
The HVHP shoots better in my Nylon 66 than anything else, including Mini-Mags.
Not a bad round if you don't mind the sticky lube, same as the Subsonic.

I bought the RWS SS HP and RWS semiauto. Both shoot well in certain guns of mine. The 52c loves the SS and the RPRr loves the semiauto

All of my guns shoot the RWS pistol or rifle match ammo very well but it’s a lot more expensive

I just bought some pf this to try. Finally got to the range, and found this ammo (40 grain php) to Be accurate, with no squibs or misfires. Less than .05/round, I like it. Granted, it was a limited test at 25 yards, and only 50 rounds, but so far, so good.

Only downside I can see is that they use an external lube which gets pretty messy.

All 22 LR's are external lubed. My guess is that the softer wetter lubes have lowered friction making for more even tugs thru the bore. RWS isn't as slippery as Lapua's lube. In hotter weather it will grease up more, just don't put them in your shirt pocket.

Never noticed the MiniMags being lubed, other than the plating on the bullet. Do they use some other lube as well? These RWS loads are plated AND lubed.

ALL 22 LR bullets are lubed. This includes Copper Plated 22 LR. While Mini Mag's lube is not as soft as RWS its lube is softer than some Copper Plated rounds which have a much harder lube than Mini Mag.

Do you have any Mini Mag in your stash right now? If you do take a Mini Mag Cartridge out and lightly scrape the Ogive with a knife and you will see the wax that is ON TOP of the Copper Plate. Leaving the driving band alone will allow this contact surface to retain its lube.

I shot the RWS high velocity HP today and it shot extremely well. I had Some very tight groups at 50 yards. I Didnít measure them, but would say little more than quarter to 1/2 an inch( would say probably closer to the quarter though)for most of the groups. Really impressive for a HV Bullet. 1263fps vs 1082fps for rws-50 that my gun really likes 1712
