They should be able to stand a little more pressure as they are a harder lead bullet but (not by an overabundance) you still want to watch for pressure signs and leading of the barrel. How did your dies get goobered up by lead bullets? You may want to give the case mouth a little more expansion to stop the lead shaving.
