The Lee 2n. ed Handloading Manual has the loads listed by which powder gives the most velocity first, many calibers also list the pressures each powder developes with a certain load.
MY experience is that loads that are 5-10% below maximum are not only more pleasant to shoot, but also give better accuracy,
Since accuracy is more important to me than velocity, I go that way.
A chronograph is the same as turning on the lights in a dark room, it illuminates things[ including inflated factory velocity claims for factory ammo], some can be had for as little as $60 plus shipping on sale.
You should consider one , first chance you get.
