Powder for cast lead shooting

Hi guys. have made a heap of ,284 cast lead bullets. Looking for an alternative powder to Trail boss. I have used 2208 previously but really small amounts and results accuracy wise were not that impressive. fitted gas checks to these bullets so can drive up to around 2000 fps. Any ideas? Load advise?  Wink cheers
  

be good...And careful

ADI 2206H/H4895 is one of the favourite powders for cast bullets in the US, Be careful with cast in 7mm's the twist rate is too fast and leads the barrels badly  at velocity over 1600fps unless the lead is very hard add antinomy to your mix to harden it, If you want to shoot animals they will be too hard to expand
