40 S&W with 3N37

I have been loading my 40 S&W using 3N37 with 180 gr FN jacketed bullets. My latest purchase was 165 gr Remmington GS bullets because they were cheaper and I wanted to try a lighter bullet. I have been searching for load data for this 165 gr bullet with the 3N37 powder and can not find one. Does anyone in the TFL have load data for this combination? There is 3N37 data for 155 gr and 180 gr bullets. Can I just interpolate between these two loads?

My understanding is that data for a heavier bullet will be safe for a bullet that is the same but lighter. VV lists data for 3N37 in the .40 with 170gr bullets on their site,

5.8gr 1037fps
6.8gr 1148 fps

If it was me, this is where I would start.
