Let me see if I can help with some info that is close to what you're looking for. Speer has data for a 400 grain Flat-SP using IMR 4198. They show a load of from 36.0 grains (1368 fps) to 40.0 grains (1596 fps). This is out of a Marlin Model 1895. Sketch of the bullet used shows it to be jacketed. All the other load data I have from other sources is below or above the fps range you're looking for.
