Advice on Bullet Jump vs Powder Used in Theory


I am playing with a newly got .222 Rem. I am investigating a hunting and paper target loads using berger 52grn varmint bullets and H4895 powder.

For hunting, the loaded round needs to fit the magazine so the oal needs to be 2.130" or 1.740" measured with comparator. To sit the same bullet on the lands the comparator measurement is 1.850" This leaves a 0.110" difference.

These changes in the bullets depth into the case by half a neck length approx.

So I am wondering if a slower powder for the cartridge like H4895 is to be used on the hunting round to help with the longer jump and a quicker powder for the target which will be closer to the lands?
