Who makes the heaviest and what is the weight? I have heard of 100 grains... who makes it?

I've heard of 87 grain .224 bullets, but it takes a special 6 twist to be able to stabilize them. I doubt there's a twist rate fast enough to stabilize a 100 grain 22 bullet. Then, you might be able to get it to 2500 fps. , there's just not enough powder capacity to push the heavier bullets.

If I am not mistaken, heavy rounds of 87 grains need to be shot through a throated match rifle. I heard that it is bad for your rifle if it is not one of those.
