Anyone loading using the light .310 bullets?

Hornady, Speer, and Privi all sell 123gr .310" bullets made for 7.62X39. The Hornady manual has load giving velocities up to 3100 FPS.

Anyone ever tried these through a Mosin Nagant? I was thinking of taking my PU Sniper coyote hunting. I think a 123 VMAX at ~3000 fps would be bad medicine for varmints.

On edit:
The Reds used a lot of, US donated, IMR-4895 during WW2. Since it seems to pretty much work in everything else I'd give it a try.
Looking at the Hornady manual, every one of his loads for the 123gr bullets is 2-3 grains over max published.
