I shot some Greek ball, Winchester Silvertip, and my handloads through a No 4 rifle. You can look at the velocities. I think IMR 4064 is an excellent powder in this cartridge and you can use 180 grain bullets and they will shoot close to what the 174's will print.

Code:
No. 4 MkII 

180 gr R-P (.310) RN 42 grs IMR 4064 Lee Scoop  3.1 Hansen cases Fed 210M
