I love my CZ-452 Lux, an amazing 22 rifle that can nuke pop bottles
all day at 100 yards with the standard iron sights.
Like any rifle, the CZ452 has his own preferences for ammo, and I
tested many types of bullets on my CZ452 using a benchrest at 50 yards.
Ballistics test results for CZ452 Lux bullets
In my tests for the best bullets for the CZ 452 accuracy, the
ballistic characteristics of the best ammo was simple:
- Low velocity ammo is better: Without
exception, the “low velocity”, “subsonic” and “standard velocity” 22
bullets shot tighter groups with my CZ452.
- Expensive is better: With two notable
exceptions (in order, PMC, Blazer and CCI standard velocity), the
more expensive 22 bullets consistently shot tighter groups with less
“flyers”. You get what you pay for.
I tested many types of 22 caliber ammo, and my test is by no means
definitive. The ammo is listed best to worst, for my specific 22
As you can see, there is a direct correlation between price and
- Blazer 22 long rifle - This ammo just blows out the bullseye at
100 yards (5 cents each)
- PMC Scoremaster – Incredible accuracy and super cheap, but they
stopped making it in 2009!
- CCI 22 standard velocity – Twelve cents each (12 cents)
- Federal gold medal sold point (40 grain) – Seventy cents each
I also hear that these bullets are accurate for CZ452 target
- Federal 22 GMM
- Wolf Match Extra 22 caliber
Even within a CZ, every rifle is different and only your own tests
will tell you what your CZ likes toi eat.
