I've had good luck and good accuracy with 38 grns. of IMR 4350. The muzzle velocity is around 2600 fps.
You may also want to try H 4831/sc. Check your Berger loading manual,they have some good loads with powder you may already have.

Remington brass, 42 grains of H4350, CCI BR2 primers and 140g Amax's shoots a one ragged hole 5 shot group for me @100. It's a pretty light load at ~2660 fps. Been thinking of trying to squeeze some more speed out of it but it is pretty accurate...
