Regarding ammo for the .22.
My son used Eley Hollow point Sub Sonic in his CZ and that would group to 1" at 100 yards off the bench.
Going more up market the same ammo would group to an inch at 100 yards in a 10/22 with a Volquartsen Carbon Fibre Barrel.
I've used this ammo in my Sako Finn Fire with good results but I haven't measured the group size.
Most of the shooters at the club (Derby) use what was Lapua Club for gallery rifle small bore. It comes in tubs of 500, has some lubrication but not so much that it gums up the action of a semi auto. I've used it in a 10/22 and my Thompson Benchmark. This ammo will now be labled with a different brand name in future. As it's used at 50 yards or less pin point accuracy isn'r needed but it works well in the rifles, is accurate enough for the x ring and it's not overly expensive.
The best results in the Thompson and the Sako were with Lapua Midas but it's twice the price of the Standard.
I have an Anschutz Match rifle for bench rest and the best results are with Eley Ten X but at £186 per 1000 it's not for the odd plinking session.
The worst results I've had with any of my rifles was with RWS ammo but that's not to say it won't work well in other rifles, it just doesn't suit mine.
Try your rifle with a variety of makes of ammo and chose one that performs to what you need and is affordable.
