Default 22 Jet safety issue?

Since .222 Jet bullets (at reasonable prices) are nowhere to be found can a 5.45x39mm (221 Diameter) 60 Grain Polymer Tip bullets be safely loaded in a 22 Jet case?

Has anybody ever used a 60 grain .221 bullet in a 22 Jet?

I have reloading data for the 60 grain bullet but am looking for at least one more reputable source for confirmation.

Because this is an undersized bullet I don't expect match accuracy but what about the safety issue.

Your advice is appreciated.

Wow.. I'd say it would work but vel would really be low. esp starting loads. Let me look.. I know I have some .222 bullets here. Got a bunch of Jet ammo and some brass. No Jet left

Have had a Jet since 1970. I mostly shoot the 45 gr .223 bullet for the hornet. You can find them easily. I load 11 gr h110, and 12.5 h4227. I have been trying the barnes 40 gr .224 #22429 with h4227 and h110. Using 12 gr h110 and 13 gr h4227. No problems at all. I clean loaded rounds with break cleaner sprayed on a rag and use q tips for the cylinder. Primers stay round and extraction it no problem.

As far as i remember , when i loaded 55 gr. bullets for my .22 jet many of them made "kee holeing" . MOST IMPORTANT be carefull with the powder charge !!!
