I have been loading 200gr HP Rainiers for my .45 over 6.0 grs of W231. (Speer says the top load is 6.2 btw). I recently bought some Starline plus P brass, and would like to load the Rainiers up to about 950-1000 fps. Rainier says the bullet can take 1200fps. Problem is, none of the loading data I have shows what powder charges are for plus P loading. I have checked Speer, Winchester, Hodgdon, and Accurate. Any suggestions for formula, or other data sources? TIA

HIGHLY RECOMMEND Alliant Power Pistol for 45ACP +P. Alliant's guide says 8.2g MAX! for 200g. Guide shows 1030fps at 22,000 psi.
