.303 Brit Black Powder Load?

Hey ya'll I hope everyones Monday has been as good as possible. Well I got the thinking (yeah I know....uh oh...) Anyway the .303 British was originally a B.P. Cartridge. SO, I got this old lyman Ammo Maker kit from 1959. It has a mold for a 205gr. boolit and .313" diameter. I'm thinking of casting up some of those boolits and propelling them with real Black. So I know I should fill the case. Should I use FFFg or FFg. And should I figure out where the bullet sits in the case at the right COL and say make a mark on the case and fill to that point? Any lastly will good ole Pyro work as well? Thoughts?
