    Can you use the same loads for lead as FMJ.

    Alliant powder has a load:

    95gr.FMJ 4.2gr Unique=910fps

    Will this load work well for a 95gr. Round nose lead bullet

    It will work, but you might want to back off to 4.0 and try that first.
    Lead will be faster then jacketed with the same powder charge.

    What kind of gun?

    Try 4.0 and see how it shoots.
    I think you will probably like it.
