CFE 223 load data?

I just got some CFE 223 and federal small rifle primers to start making some ammo. My problem is the CFE 223 has only been out since this January and I cant find much load data for it. This is all I can find.

55 GR. BAR TSX FB Hodgdon CFE 223 .224" 2.180" 24.7 3065 44,600 PSI 27.4 3317 54,000 PSI

55 GR. SPR SP Hodgdon CFE 223 .224" 2.200" 26.0 3133 43,300 PSI 27.8 3329 51,300 PSI

Im using these bullets http://www.midwayusa.com/product/116...cket-boat-tail.

I want to get the load data correct. My AR is chambered for a 5.56 so it can take the higher pressure. I was thinking of starting my load around 25-26 grains.
