most double based powder charges that large call for a magnum primer i would check your data your manuals should all tell you to reduce 10% and work back up when switching any component fdjsjjfhffrjeffdjeieufher

You are four grain below max according to Hodgdon.

You are two grains below max according to Speer. Speer recommends the use of Mag primers with ball powders like 414.

You should be just fine.

If you're that worried, you could always start at 10% below starting and work up to the same load, but I agree with the others that it should be no biggie.
