knowing what caliber and pistol you are wanting to load for would be helpful.

check out their load data at Alliiant Powder. they have a load for the 40 using a 165 gr JHP. should work fine for the 165 gr FMJ bullets as well.

You need to broaden your assortment of manuals.
I suggest Lyman 49th.

For what it is worth, I have loaded 150 Grain noslers with anywhere from 7.0 to 8.4 grains of Power Pistol for my XD 40
7.0 = 1070 FPS
8.0 = 1161 FPS
8.4 = 1193 FPS

Isn't tmj an electro plated round? I looked at all main stream manuals hornandy, Lyman's, Speer etc. all call for a specific bullet xtp, GDHP,TMJ, does it not matter so much?

powder charges are primaryly defined by bullet weight. 165 gr. is 165 gr. most of them are trying to promote their brands of bullets so those are the ones used. of course Speer, Hornady and Nosler are going to use their own bullets!

a TMJ bullet still uses the same type of load data a FMJ or JHP would use. the only difference in powder charges that might have some difference might be lead bullets. but as you are using a Glock? they don't recommend using full lead bullets anyway.

I use 7gr of Power Pistol for 165gr RNFP FMJ bullets. These are shot from two M&P 40's with no issues.

As others have said, please refer to Alliant's website for exact measures though.

TMJ -Total Metal jacket. There is no lead exposed at all. It is jacketed in the traditional sense, only more thoroughly.
Electroplated (Plated) is a different animal. Though you can typically use the lower end jacketed loads with them without drama.
