Welcome to the forum. There should be tons of load data available for that combination. Check Hodgdons website.

I use 1.095 for the round nose and 1.075 for the hollow points.I use berrys plated rn and hornady xtp's for the hollow points,but not all hollow points are the same length.Go by what the book says,but I think a good rule is to go the same length as a factory load. sj

I loaded and shot close to 1500 rounds with the same bullet and powder going 4.4 gr. and a oal of 1.14 thru a G19. Seems to work fine for me. I couldn't find anymore 231 at the local spots so will soon be switching to Universal or Unique.
