    There is no ballistic data on it yet and all we have is press release data until the trade show where where I am sure they will have more info for us.
    That being said if we connect the dots, we can guess couple of things. Lapua has been involved with PRS both rimfire and centerfire for a while so I am guessing they are taking the feedback from the field and trying to make something that will be more suitable for beyond the 100yd. We have seen some really good results with longer ranges with some of he Lapua ammunition, especially with some little faster loads. For example Sk Biathlon Sport is rated at 1090 and the extra speed seems to help when going to longer ranges.
    For the comments of what "long range" is, that is of course debatable. However when you take .22lr ammo I think anything beyond 100 meters could be considered long range.
    Price wise, I am guessing it would be sub $10 per box. I could be wrong, but this is SKs sweet spot and I am pretty sure they want to defend hard that price segment.
    Again, this is fresh off the news press so lets see what the numbers are once they are published and more importantly once we put them though the guns.

    Take a look at this video - quite interesting results:

    My hope is something a little heavier, 44-46 grains, that maintains a brisque velocity, that has more of a HPBT geometry and BC.

    A hundred yards with a .22 is a real test for any marksman. The bullseye is as big as you want it, but the circular error inherent in each shot means you'd better not throw away any points. Your own error will show up, just like shooting air rifle is unforgiving.

    I have recently decided that 22 "precision shooting" is the only kind that I will be able to practice enough to get a lot better at. First because cf ammo in the quantities required costs a lot more, and takes a lot more time reloading, and because 200-300yd ranges are relatively easy to find and get to, vs 1000yds. Watching that video, he shows that the drop and wind drift of a 168gr 308 at 1000yds is very similar to the drop and wind drift of a 22 at 300 yds. I expect 22 match ammo to move toward higher bc bullets if the rimfire precision game gets more popular.
