My guess would be 3.5 to 4.5 grains of W231 powder with that bullet. It is only a guess. I fairly certain using 5.0 grains is going to be way too hot. It also depends on the OAL you are using. I would load them as long as your pistol will allow in the chamber and in the magazines. The max OAL is 1.275 if I'm not mistaken.

Finding published data is a lot better than a guess would be. The diameter of the bullet will be fine. That bullet should have an area made for a crimp. You don't need to crimp at that point for the caliber you are going to load them in.
