150gr. FN .308 out of a Mini-30

I picked up some Sierra 150gr, FN Pro Hunters for my 30-30 and wanted to try them in my Ruger Mini-30, anyone know of a good powder measurement so I don't blow my rifle up... lol I also want to run this in my Ak-47. I also have Serra 125gr Pro Hunters I need a good mix for. I'm thinking more short range home defene rounds. They are .308 going through .311 barrels
Thanks in advance!

I have not blown up using 150 FMJ 308 and SP at about 21 gr of IMR 4198 and 125 SP 308 at 22 gr of the same. I have shot them hotter but wanted to get the same zero or close, so I reduced the loads about a grain.
