Straight wheelweights will be fine for the velocity, but H-110 is the wrong powder to use for that velocity. 21 gr H-110 over the Lee 400 will produce 1200 fps even from a 7 1/2" tube, and ~1100 fps from your 5" tube, and outstanding accuracy. The thing with H-110 is it is a bad powder to download with. I would use 2400 for a 1000 fps load.

Here is a link to my load work ups with the 480 http://www.serveroptions.com/ubb/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=25;t=000222 I know I used 2400 for an 1100 fps load, which should be right at 1000 fps from your short barrel. If it's not in the thread, I'll check my load notes to see what the charge was.
