Any 14k Palladium White Casting Tips?

I am woking on a small ring that is soon going to be cast in 14k Palladium white gold and I am wanting to reach out to others that might have some relevant experience. First question, will my plasticast with bandust work for this alloy or should I get a high temp investment made for platinum? What is a good flask temp for a small delicate band with a lot of tight spots(I am thinking 1150 F)? How does this alloy compare to casting silver in your experience? Is casting 14k Palladium White gold really that much harder than other alloys with a Vacuum setup (some of the past forum posts on this site have made it seem near impossible)? Any and all info, experience or summaries of your process are very welcome.
