Always good to know the Brinell hardness number and I
guess the brand and coating maybe helpful as well.
When I bought my coated leads 230/300/340s I spoke with
the maker for maximum velocities and even powder
recommendations.
On the 230gr coated bullets, I loaded TrailBoss up to the base of the bullet.
The bullets above are all Penn premium cast.

The experts will chime in at some point.

The 230s in pic.
Used for 45ACP, taper crimp above the groove,
but good inexpensive targets bullets
to let shooters try the 460s.

Would need more details to make any suggestion

Lighter cast bullets (<300) tend to have leading issues.

Bullets in the 325 to 360 grain tend to offer best performance.

did this with a 230 grain coated over Unique way back for a relative.
I believe we referenced 454 casul data to get in a ballpark and worked from there.
You might be able to do similar with your 200.
I've used powder coating up to 2700 FPS in rifle applications with no leading. The juice isn't worth the squeeze however, as accuracy fell apart.
The point was to see when it's back would break.
It's hard to imagine even a reduced load within the range of a 460's capabilities being useless. That unique load was quite accurate and would still perform in the ballpark of a full house 44 magnum.
