Anyone got a pet load for a Cz .222

Right so I had heard a bunch about how the 222 is such a wonderful cartridge to reload and then I happened to come across a brand new CZ527 lux that was cheap.
Long story short, do you think I can get it to group well??
Its that bad that my AR comes threateningly close with cheap factory ammo.
Its really peved me off so Ive just floated the barrel and will start again with load testing.
Does anyone have a good recipe so I dont have to go through the gammet of bullet samplers.
Thanks in advance.

What twist? If its 1:14 then 50gn or 55grn flat base bullets are pretty much top weight you can use. I use 40grn blitz for bunny's and 50grn hornady's for anything bigger that pops up.
  

Just do it

Yep 1-14, started out using the 50 grainers but like you said theyre a bit heavy stopped at 45 grain hornet style bullets but maybe still a bit heavy huh? what about bullet jump with the lighter bullets as I find the 45 grainers are barely in the case if i want to get anywhere near the lands.

I've found the 40grn sierra blitz do the same, just in the neck but very accurate over 21.5grn of 2207. I'd avoid bullets designed for hornet as they are slightly different design to the more modern .223 projectiles. I can dail from 100 to 400m with amazing repeatability, IF I get the wind right!!
