It sounds like a bit of reading/study is necessary. Read The ABCs of Reloading, and Lyman's 49th Edition Reloading Handbook. In these texts you will get not only the "how to reload" stuff, but bullet abbreviations (RN, RNFP, GD, etc.) and other nominclature. Different bullets will need different powder charges due to different shape, bore contact, and alloy of jacket (or lead bullet). The two bullets you list, 115 LRN (115 geain Lead Round Nose, by Hodgdon), and 115 SPR GDHP (115 grain Speer's Gold Dot Hollow Point) have very different charistics when shot and require different loads...

Get a couple reloading manuals too. Safe effecient reloading is pretty difficult without them...
