I would not suggest using unknown products of any kind that you don't have data on if you are not well versed in reading pressure signs. You don't really know what the makeup of the bullet would be, it could have harder allows, or thicker jactets, both of which could increase pressures.

Look at several reloading manuals for data on 62gr bullets in the powder of your choice. Choose the mildest load and work up from there, you will be fine with some common sense.

I'd personally avoid anyplace that uses the complete misnomer "bulletheads" just on principle. If such a sin doesn't set your teeth on edge, just begin with the mildest Start loads you can find for bullets of similar weight, jacket type, and bearing length.
To see my books and articles, just Google my name.

Way back in the old days I would look in my Lyman manual for the right caliber then to right bullet weight and there it was.

Cast bullets are the true and rightous path to shooting bliss
