Default Load data for Winchester and Hunters Supply

A friend of mine just moved into a new (to him) home and found some bullets. He ended up giving them to me and now I need load data....can't find anything specific on the net.
They are:
1) Hunters Supply 44 200g RNFP and 40 175g SWC. (all cast lead)
2) Winchester 115g and 124g FMJ 9mm and 44 240g SJHP.
So, I need load data for these 5 different bullets. I have emailed both manufacturers and have heard nothing for them.
Being pretty new to loading, I didn't want to use just any similar bullet data as most books do not list bullet length as compared to COAL. And I don't want an overpressure problem due to too little case volume. Those Win. 44's are pretty long.
I have Bullseye, Red Dot, 2400, Herco, Unique, Titegroup and Universal powders.
I am surprised that with the Winchester powders out there, they don't specify or even list their own bullets for their data. They must be licensed out to some other manufacturer.
Thanks.

That's exactly what you need to do. Those are all pretty standard bullets, and if you take load data for a similar design, start low and work up, you should have no issues. You aren't always going to find data on random Joe Bob's Cast bullets that you have. Even with those Winchester 9mm, those bullets weights are so common in 9mm that they would be wasting their time putting out their own data for their own bullet. Plenty of data is already available.

I will say that a book like Lyman's 49th will give you a much better resource than Alliant's or Hodgdon's online reloading centers. Lyman 49th has many more bullet designs, often a couple different ones for the same weight/caliber. Helps you to choose one that matches better.
