I would not worry if you want to use the IMR4895 powder for deer hunting or target work..........
even with a reduced 150 fmj bullet at only 2590fps, at 400 yards it will have 1,063 ft/lbs of energy.
A factory Remington 150 gr core/lokt doing 2880fps at 300 yards has 1,488 ft/lbs of energy with a poor BC of .338.....................
if you are loading for a 308 or 30-06 rifle.

Slow is not always a bad thing.
