If a manual gives you a certain charge it will be safe and usable, compressed or not makes no difference.
(Cross check if you can)

You can try the 11.0 grns charge which may help getting the charge to burn properly, you can also try a magnum primer who knows.

But unless you really need to use the #7 I would switch to something more suitable. #5 or even #2.

How long are those Hornady bullets? If they are pretty short your oal may be on the long side making the powder burn badly with this powder.
