147 grain FMJ 9mm bullet

A friend give me 200 147 grain FMJ bullets. Due to the powder shortage, I only have Winchester 231 powder. I can not find load data for this bullet. I will use them for plinking purposes so any suggestion's will be welcome. I'm just trying to use them because of the shortage.

Handloads.com lists a load for 231 and 147 grain FMJ at 3.9 grains for 900 fps. It is listed as a "guest" source so take that with whatever you think that is worth. I know I have seen others that was just the first one I found. i know this wont help much either but I have been using Unique at 4.3 with real great results and that comes straight from Alliant.
