40 s&w open load info

I've searched and seached the net trying to find info for a good open load in 40 with little luck. So I figured I would ask here. Does anyone have a pet load for a open class 40. I am shooting a Glock 35 with a lone wolf barrel and a Carver 4 port comp. I want to find a flat shooting load that still makes major. This is setup is mainly for fun at my range and the monthly local match. Not looking to be a national competitor or anything so please don't tell me to sell it and get a 38 super or 9mm major. Just want helpful info for someone with a good flat shooting load. Thanks.

You'll probably get more pertinent 40S&W major load responses on Brian Enos forum - http://www.brianenos.com/forums/index.php?showforum=73

These two threads may help:

165 gr plated over Universal, somewhere between 5.2 and 5.6 gr should work. Get the velocity over 1000, but keep it subsonic.
