As for loads duplicating 38-55 WCF, my experimenting gave me a range of something like 18.0 - 28.0 gr of Re7  giving me a velocities of about 1350 - 1800 fps.  The bullet was the 260gr RNFPGC from Bonus Bulllets.  I stopped at 18.0 gr but probably could have gone lower.  The case is starting to get pretty empty at this point...a kapok filler might be in order beyond this.  Accuracy in my Marline stayed pretty much constant at it's usual 3-4 inch at 100 yd.  Marshall warns of keyholing at lower velocities but I didn't experience that problem.

Happy Trails...
