    Id start off with 16.5 -17 grains and work it up.

    A 9MM MAY expand to .45 but a 45ACP will never shrink to 9MM.

    There is not a lot of information on Alliant 2400 and cast lead bullet loads due to the main fact-2400 is a better magnum powder.
    Cast lead bullets even with a brinnel of 18 or more are still a bit soft to use with 2400 without using gas checks on the bullet base.
    If I were in your shoes I believe I would try to find something a little more cast friendly like Alliant Unique where 8.0 grains would be a good target load.

    For cast try unique unless your running a gas check. Gas Checks are easy to add to your existing 210s simply need a bullet sizer in .410 and the checks.
