I mean "consistency" is all relative, depending on what you're after, but if .22 caliber and ~100 foot pounds is your huckleberry, the Huben K1 seems like the obvious choice. Huben has its detractors, however for the cost of a custom built Beaumont you could almost consider the 1.5K Huben an appetizer. 

 

I guess I've just been having thoughts somewhat along the same lines as you, and reached the conclusion that something .30 caliber or below would be the only way to get a reasonable shot count. Most of the existing small-bore platforms just don't have the go juice to really take advantage of heavy high BC slugs, and if they do they're at their very limits. A Huben meanwhile can easily and efficiently generate that kind of power, and having FINALLY seen what is inside and how they work (link https://youtu.be/mI2MI5sv7w8) they're really actually not that complicated or scary. So perhaps something worth considering, especially since quality slugs are now widely available from a number of different manufacturers. 

 

Just a thought.
