You could try something like 50-65gr or so off a really slow burning powder (AA8700, US869 or some surplus powder like WC872 or 5010). As long as you keep the case close to full it should be fairly accurate, but the velocity will be reduced to the 1900-2300fps range ( thats 30-30win range, plenty for whitetails). It's possible it could be lower it just depends on the charge weight. I did some experimentation with reduced loads (well, deduced velocity loads) about 5 years ago. My favorite reduced velocity load was 55gr of 5010 under a 150gr hornady interlock bullet, but for the life of me i can't remember what the velocity was. I'm thinking it was somewhere around 1970fps, but i can't be sure. I tossed all the load data i had when i moved last year.
