7.62x51 load question

Rifle: FAL with 16.5" barrel, gas setting '3' for 1980 South African

Lake City once fired brass

40gr IMR 4895 powder

CCI #34 primers

Hornady 150gr FMJ boat-tail bullets

OAL 2.700"

The Lyman reloading manual suggests 40gr 4895 to start. Should I reduce powder by 10% given the Lake City Nato brass, as well as another % for the magnum primer?

I am looking for a safe mid range load.
