You might try
Check out link to Ed's Essays (note second essay) and "How to Handload
Subsonic Rifle Cartridges" near bottom of the page.

What propellants do you have available and what projectile do you want to use?

Be very careful making it subsonic. Too low, the bullet might not clear the barrel. This then will lead to a massive KB! when shooting the next round without realizing that a bullet is stuck inside the barrel. A guy got killed this way a few years back trying to make his rifle bullet subsonic. He was an experience reloader and was testing his subsonic reloads.

IMHO people should say away from reloading rifle bullets for subsonic use. Subsonic rifle bullets have little benefits with a lot of risk involved. Make sure after every shoot that the bullet cleared the barrel, just to be on the safe side.

I don't know about sub sonic, but 14 grains of Unique under a 185 lead bullet in .308 will do about 1600 FPS... Very accurate out of my Enfield 2A1...
Yes, in fact I do have a 454... in more ways than one.
