Use Hornady's FTX published data specific to their bullet. Case length and powder charge differ from generic 200 gr bullets. My experience with FTX's in my 307 was the shape of the follower Win used in the tube isn't FTX friendly. The last round from the tube may not feed up the ramp reliably. ...But published loads look like a 250+ yard no brainer and I wouldn't let issues with the 6th shot stop me from using it for hunting.

If using standard 35 Rem flat noses be happy with the extra 200-300 fps and don't get too greedy trying to push lighter bullets too fast. My experience maxing out 30-30 bullets in the 307 was the ratio of purple jelly to edible meat at close range was unacceptable.
