    What does your reloading manual say as far as red dot loads with 115 jacketed bullets?

    I am just starting to reload myself so take this with a grain of powder(pun intended)

    What powder? What gun?

    I would personal,y do 20-30 and if your gun likes it do some more. We need more details to really help.

    Yes. They use a different kind of rifling. Lead rounds can make them kaboom.
