There is no way a home reloader can really know for sure what pressures he is loading to in this area.
What he could do though is work up the loads in a 44 Magnum which we know will be safe then send the rounds to Western Powder and have them test them to see what pressure they're running.

It still won't let us know if that load is safe in a 5 shot Taurus though, no matter what the results of the pressure test are.

As it happens I recently did a bunch of load development to see what it takes to get 1,200 fps with a 250 gr Keith in the 44 Special with something other than Keiths load. Tests were fired in 2 M29's and 1 M24. I have no idea if these would be safe in the Taurus.
