The gun will tell you when you get the right amount of powder, as it will run with a cadence that isn't there with too little powder, and doesn't run any better with more. My gun likes 44 grains of Hodgdon BL-C(2). Each powder is a little different, but the only way to know for sure what's best for your gun is to try different loads. A half grain makes a difference, so once you get it to, let's say, 43 grains, try 42.5 and 43.5 and see if there's a difference between them.
Use the least amount of powder possible to make the gun run smoothly.
