Default Reloading .50ae with Rainier 300 gr plated projectiles

Does anyone have any experience reloading .50ae cartridges with Rainier 300 gr plated projectiles? As I understand it, you should treat plated projectiles as a lead projectile, as the plating is not as dense as the jacketing on a FMJ round.

I can't find any load data online or in any of my manuals with this specific combination.

I'll be using Wolf Large Pistol Magnum primers and Winchester 296.

The closest thing I could find is the load data from for 300gr IMI projectiles, although it does not specificy whether they are plated or FMJ.

Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated. I'm a newb when it comes to re-loading, so I want to make sure I cross all my T's and dot all of my I's before I go blasting off any newly reloaded rounds in my hand cannon.
