Xchocks are not meant to fully replace standard wheel chocks because the can be rotated out from between the tires. Granted, it would have to be pretty severe torque to do it. I have one I really don't use any more because I have the Ground Control auto leveling system now and only need to chock when I unhook. I found the Xchock really did not do all that much to take out movement in the trailer when walking around inside. If you are looking to reduce movement while in the trailer I would go with JT Strongarms on the stabilizer jacks.

I use a pair of X chocks. I set them pretty tight and they made a huge difference on my old 36 fiver

JT strongarms are a nice product, and there is another brand I cant think of right now.

Lippert bought out JT Strongarm. There are at least two other products:

BAL Lock Arm Stabilizers and Steadyfast RV Stabilizer System.

All are available on Amazon and almost every RV "online website".

Steady fast is the other one I was trying to think of. Thanks for reminding me.

Your Bullet has wide spaced axles. If buying x-chocks, please be aware that they make two varieties, one for standard spacing and one for wide spacing. I bought two over the holiday as Amazon warehouse deals. Looking forward to using them on a big AZ and UT trip coming up at the end of March. They have good reviews. Many reviewers said to get one for each side for maximum stability. Here's the link...

Xchocks made a big difference to the stability of our TT. Before I got them, the DW complained continuously about me walking around while she was in bed. Now that we've got the chocks, not a peep!
They don't help with sideways movement, but really damp down the fore/aft stuff.

I totally agree. I usually don't use them for overnights while on the road but more then a day or 2 and they make a huge difference in comfort.

For a 2019 Cougar 22RBS would I need the regular size or the extended x chock?

We had a 2017 21RBS and can't say that I noticed any stability problem. With the corner jacks down it seemed good. We now have a 22RBS that we haven't taken possession of yet. Not sure if it has all four electric corner jacks or not. Some literature says just the two rear (mandatory), some seems to indicate all four. Wait and see.

We too use the Chocks on the 316RL and feel as though there is a difference when walking around. We also have the Jt Strong-arms in the rear and I'm looking to install the BAL on the front stabilizers since they seem pretty straight forward to install plus, despite the Chocks, I still feel like there is still some horizontal movement when walking about in the coach. I realize I can't eliminate all the movement, but at the cost of BAL stabilizers, I think it's worth the chance that I can reduce it even further.
