Accurate's start load for 240 LSWC is 18.1grs with a max 20.2gr, for jacketed 240gr 17.8gr start and 19.8gr max.
For light target loads for my 6" Model 29, I load 14.5grs under a 240gr LSWC, your girlfriend should like this loading, just a little over 1000fps. I do use magnum primers (Winchester Large Pistol at a minimum) when loading #9.
