To match factory velocity with current Alliant product and Remington 148 HBWC flush seated you need to use 2.8 to 3.0 depending upon the case and primer. OK to load up to 3.2, but do not exceed this with flush-seated HBWCs.
Accuracy declines with Hornady, Speer, Zero, Precision Delta and Star HBWC bullets above 2.8. Best accuracy with Remington and the older Winchester bullets if you still have any, is in the range of 2.8 to 3.1 of current Alliant with Remington 1-1/2 primer.
S&W revolvers favor a heavier charge, as do converted Colt .38 Super Autos rechambered to AMU ammmunition.
