I am using 4.3gr of VV N310, a 230 gr RN West Coast bullet, 1.245" OAL, Winchester primers, and mixed brass. PF is appox. 175 to 180. It's clean and reliable.

5.3 grains of Winchester 231 powder will make your power factor of 165 with a safe margin along with:
Starline cases preferred, miscellaneous will do.
Winchester primer.
230gr round nose - either West Coast or Montana Gold.
1.260 to 1.262 overall length.
.002 taper crimp.
All of this for my 5" full-sized Kimber Stainless Classic using a 16 lb. (stock) Wolff recoil spring.
This is my practice load and my competition load. It will accompany me to the IDPA Nationals in October.
I hope you will enjoy IDPA!!

My load is very similar as well. 5.5gr of WW231, Winchester large pistol primers, 230gr RN bullet (Rainier or West Coast). 1.250 oal, and .469 crimp. Run through the chronograph this week... 850fps.
