anyone have a good combination for reloading 40 S&W for competition, bullet weight, powder and type?

I've been using 4.7 gr of Titegroup with a Montana Gold 180 gr FMJ bullet at 1.135" overall length.

Runs 925-950 (makes major) from my Para-Ordnance P-16.

Number 6

about 4.5 grains of Red Dot under 170 grain Montana Gold hardcast SWC's in my P-16 and Glock 23. I've gotten some 180 jacketed and some WST, but have not worked up loads yet - waiting to get my gun back!

A second vote for Titegroup. Not very sensitive to bullet setback and burns well.
