Changing the weight to 340gr and guessing the length at 1.1 inches; Per QuickLoad, start with 30gr IMR4227, bullet seated to produce 2.26 COL and work up from there. If the bullet is shorter than 1.1, no big deal. If it is longer, reduce charge a grain per .05 additional length. IMR4227 should be a good match up in terms of case fill and propellant burned. H110 almost makes the grade but doesn't fill the case adequately. If you still want to try it, start with 31gr. You don't have much of a comfort window before the pressure shoots up. Maybe 2-3gr. IMHO, 4227 is a better match. Some other powder in between the two would make an even better match but 4227 works. Keep in mind that QuickLoad is a synthetic model. Never seen it underestimate pressure and velocity. It has always erred on the side of caution. As you said, my biggest concern would also be feeding.

With a heavier bullet and a little lower velocity you might have better luck. I look forward to your testing.
