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 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.
