My biggest concern with that load is getting a bullet stuck in the bore. Alliant lists a max as 5.8 with a 124 Gold Dot which is a plated bullet:

1.12 4 CCI 500 Unique 5.8 1,180

The plating on the bulet will likely act like a jacketed bullet in terms of friction in the barrel.

The start load would be a 10% reduction. 4.3 is a 25% reduction. Lead bullets are much more forgiving and better for light loads.
