    Check the Alliant site for a bushing chart AND data. I highly recommend the Red Versalite with Green Dot at around 1200 fps. The Figure 8 or clones work fine too. No need for more speed. Be sure to double check your drops with a scale. Bushings will vary from the charts. I use the Winchester W209 or CCI 209M primers and try to keep the pressures of the selected loads under 10,000 PSI. You could try to push it faster, but for that, I would recommend Unique. That will give you 1250 fps with reasonable pressures.
