You do understand most any brand bullet with similar construction load data is fine to use, as long as you start low and work up?

I load my .38 Super ammo with 5.5 grains of AutoComp however I use a 125-grain Missouri lead semi-wadcutter and get very good accuracy with that recipe. TiteGroup powder is almost as accurate in my gun and both burn cleanly.

You really should have saved your money and instead use the different powder manufacturers' loading data available free on their websites. It's a lot more current and accurate than any book as it can be updated as often as needed and errors can be quickly corrected.
