If you've been shooting a particular load in a particular gun with no ill effects, then it should be safe to continue along those lines as long as you never put a jacketed round through the bore unless it's been thoroughly cleaned of lead first.

Just be aware that shooting that identical load in another apparently identical gun may yield very different results in terms of leading and pressure rise, and also that changing some aspect of the load in the original gun may also turn out to change things more dramatically than expected.

It's not that it's super risky or dangerous, the problem is that it sometimes can be and it's not really possible to give a solid rule of thumb that will insure safety.
Did you know that there is a TEXAS State Rifle Association?
