Default Hodgdon Benchmark powder for 8mm 98k

I have some used brass for my 98k that are fire formed to this rifle. I have some benchmark powder that I'm going to try for my first reloads for this rifle. I was looking at the hodgdon reloading data and the max load with this powder pushing a 150 grain bullet states a velocity of 2860ft per second.Now of course I'm going to start with the minimum load and work my way up. I've reloaded pistol ammo for 12 years now but this will be my first try at reloading rifle cartridges. I've done the reading and the research is there any downsides to using this powder for this caliber?
