just found this..

With 231 starting load is 7.3grains with a max load of 8.3 grains. Hope this helped you out I got these loads out of the 13th edition of the Speer manaul.

can anyone confirm I have a 12th edition.

Lyman reloading manual shows a starting load of 8.5 grains of unique with a 255 grain, lead bullet. Claimed velocity is 1013. So, with a lighter bullet, that's where I'd start. They show loads going up to 10.2 grains of unique without much increase in velocity.

Somewhere between 8.0 and 8.5 grains to start with a 230 grain, lead bullet.
