Laser Cast .40 load

I'm looking for suggestions on good starting loads for a general target load with the following components:

Laser Cast 180 grain FN .40 S&W Lead bullet
Winchester WSP primers
Hodgdon Titegroup powder

I used 4.2 grains of Titegroup under the Speer FN 180 grain bullets I first used, but I decided to go with Laser Cast this time to make the shooting more economical (500 @ 26 bucks VS. 100 @ 15 bucks).

Can I just use the same load with the lead bullet as I did jacketed? The 4.2 grains was on the low end of the recommended load for the previous setup, so I was thinking it would be a good place to start.

Thanks in advance.
