    You are going to be hard pressed to find an "exact" answer...each gun is different. I would try H 1000 or RL 25, start low, and work up with a single three shot group at each charge weight. I usually go up in 1/2 grain incruments.

    Most here are less worried about FPS and more about accuracy.


    Good luck, and let us know how it goes.

    I would agree on suggesting H1000 for that. Start low and work up.
