Never exceed the maximum load. This information must be regarded as a guideline only.

If you can’t find the data from the powder you usually use, you can use data for Lead Casted projectiles in common Reloading Books. Coated projectiles produce less friction compared to copper plated or fmj projectiles, so they need less powder to obtain the same velocity. You can generally put 15-20% less powder from your regular loading data for Jacked Projectiles as a starting point.
