I'll say it's snappy. You are quite a bit above max for a 230grLRN, like 6% charge wt, who knows how much over pressure??? Caution would be in order.
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".

I run 4.4 gr of WST behind Berrys 230 gr plated bullet.
My G30 loves this load.
I tried 231, Bullseye, #2, Red Dot, Unique and WST.
3 different guns, WST was the best accuracy overall.
I would add at least a couple tenths for a jacketed bullet.


100 rounds, rapid fire, 10 yard line.
