"Usual" Ruger-level (30,000CUP) loads should be fine.  Some manuals expressly include the T/C in their list of guns that can be loaded to this level, but not all do.

Check Speer, Hornady, Nosler, Hodgdon, Lyman, Sierra, et al.  Jacketed data should be fine, if anything produce a little less pressure whe substituting quality cast bullets.

I'd personally recommend starting w/H110 or WW296.  Others have their favorite powders, I'm sure.
