.444 Marlin and Dupont 4320 Powder

I was recently given some old Dupont/IMR 4320 powder that appears to be in excellent codition. Does any one have loading data for using this powder to load .444 Marlin? I have a Winchester Big Bore Timber Rifle ,so it has a very strong action.

For a 240gr slug starting load is 54gr max is 56gr. Use this data at your own risk.
