    Hodgdon online data for 243 in 75 grain HP bullets gives a start load as 36 grains giving 3246 f/sec and 45000 CUP pressure plus a MAXIMUM of 38.5 grains giving 3408 f/sec and 50500 CUP.
    Extrapolating the pressure figures a 38.7 grain load indicates a pressure of about 51000 CUP
    I realize that the bullet is different but for safety's sake don't start loading at a charge weight that's above the manufacturers' published max value. That's bad and possibly dangerous practice.
    There is no short cut! Start low and work up the load in your own rifle looking for pressure signs as you go.
    Besides your rifle may perform better on a lower load.

    Load safe!
