With 85gr. Hornady bullets I like and have used 5.5gr. of 800x, very accurate load that chronographs at 1250fps. For 100gr. Hornady or 100gr. hardcast, in my opinion, there's no better powder than Lil' Gun. I can get 1200fps with either out of a 4 5/8" barrel with great accuracy. Those same 100gr. loads move out at 1700+fps out of my Marlin rifle. For target work I use 3gr. Bullseye with a 100gr. hardcast that gives 950fps. Hope this helps. Good luck and Happy Shootin'!
Owning a firearm doesn't make you armed anymore than owning a guitar makes you a musician...words of Jeff Cooper...one of my favorites.
