I regularly shoot with a friend that loves the Fed MPL (the cheapies from WallyWorld) hulls. He loads Cheddite primers, 18.7 gr. of Red Dot, the CB clone of the Fed 12S3 wad an 1 1/8 oz. shot. He is a fierce competitor and a great shot. He is also 76 years old and has been reloading the Fed paper-base hulls for over 30 years.

I have no idea where he got this recipe (1st Ed. of the Lyman's Manual??????) or what the velocity or pressure are. I've asked him and he just says he doesn't remember, but he hasn't changed the bar or bushing in his MEC 600 since he started reloading/shooting this combo.

Point is, I'm reasonably sure you can reload and shoot these hulls in safety, so long as you continue to ensure no barrel obstructions occur. I'd call Ben Ammonette at Alliant Powder customer service if you have any doubts however.
