    The Lyman Reloading Handbook doesn't have a 155gr cast bullet listed, but they do list a 150gr and a 175gr.

    150gr 1.090" OAL
    Starting 5.5gr with max at 6.5gr

    175gr 1.125" OAL
    starting 4.3gr with max at 5.8gr

    As always, start with the lower charged load and work your way up while checking for signs of over pressure

    Hodgdon shows 5.1 to 6.0gr (1.125") using a plated bullet, which is what you would use for lead.
