You don't need a low pressure load, just stick to book data. The guys getting into trouble are pushing beyond most book data. Pick a load in the manual w/ the powder you have & stick to just over midrange. Your brass will last at least 15 reloads. Any of the powders you have will make ammo. Lowest pressures come from slower powders, but slower powders burn poorly @ anything not above midrange load levels. SO I would probably go w/ the Unique, AA#5 or Herco. You won't find any printed Herco data though, so unless you have a lot of reloading exp, stick to book loads. Get a Lyman #49, lots of data in there including lead bullet data.
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".
