    3.5 of bullseye. It's less than 700 fps. Might not work the action. Shoots real nice in my converted 1917 Webley and my ADC derringer. Don't wanna shoot full-power loads in those two.

    I've not had much luck with my RIA feeding reloads. It is very finicky as it only wants to eat Factory Loads. OTOH, my Kimber eats a .185 gr LSWC with 4.5 grains of Hogdon 38 very nicely. The COL I load to is 1.195"

    Lymans 49th lists a great amount of data for that bullet style and weight.
