Pet loads for 155 FMJ Montana Gold in .40 S&W

I'm shooting a Glock 23 and worried about a Kb.

What are some good lite-medium loads for the 155 in 40?

Before you shoot reloads,you should get a aftermarket barrel.i would not shoot a glock with a stock barrel.use factory ammo untill you change the barrel.
