You can use the load for 115gr jacketed bullets which Alliant publishes, which is 4.7gr. Or if you download the Alliant 2004 manual you will see a load published for 125gr Lead, which is 4.9gr. Both these recipes illustrate a reloading principle, first that you can use jacketed data when reloading lead bullets of the same weight and secondly that using load data for a heavier bullet is acceptable for a lighter bullet as well. Perhaps not for H110, but thats a different story.

These loads are max, so if you use them reduce 10% as a starting point.
New gun, same ol' shot.
