Re:  i need a good load

I might suggest you get the Lyman #49 reloading manual.
It is the best in the industry for cast bullet loads.

You could try:
Bullseye - 2.4 start - 3.0 Max - 915 FPS
WW-231 - 2.3 Start - 3.5 Max - 1,000 FPS
Unique - 3.1 Start - 3.7 Max - 920 FPS
AA #2 - 3.7 Max - 934 - FPS
AA #5 - 4.8 - Max 891 FPS

AA #7 is not suitable, as it is way too slow.

The faster burning Bullseye or WW-231 are probably going to give the best results.

Your defining moment for a max load in the P3AT is case swelling over the feed ramp cut.

If you can see any at all, back off, you went too far.
