135gr E-Treme bullets recipe?

A friend gave me a box of 500 rounds of E-Treme bullets, 135gr, HP .356 profile, since I only use 125gr and these were free I want to load them and test them out.  My preferred powder is sports pistol for 9mm minor and I am using a CZ S2 platform.  What I'm currently loading for minor is 125gr TC blue bullets, .356 using 3.9gr of Sports pistol and 1.130 OAL which gives me 131/133 PF~ 

 

If anyone has a recipe for the above grain and bullet, please chime in~  Thanks in advance~

For coated bullets using Sport Pistol I load as follows @ 1.12":

125 gr = 4.0 gr SP

135 gr = 3.7 gr SP

147 gr = 3.4 gr SP

These will all give you mid-130s power factor via a 4.5" barrel.

 

If you load a plated 135 gr bullet with 3.3 gr SP if will likely be a little weaker than you want.

thanks!~ I'm just experimenting with the 135gr since they were given to me for free.  Looking to test at 3.4gr of SP and chrono~

I've been shooting Blue's 135gr .356 TC's with 3.4gr Sport Pistol @ 1.115-1.12, and on my buddies chrono last week I was consistently getting 130-133pf out of a Shadow 2. I was previously using 3.5gr,  but that was showing 133-135pf so I sleazed it down a bit to be a gamer lol... (don't really feel much if any difference dropping down 0.1gr to be honest). Like BJB said, the plated's are supposed to be a tad slower than coated so I bet you'd be fine with 3.4 or if not, 3.5 to end up around 130pf.

Thanks, I loaded about 200 rounds at 3.4gr~  Chrono next to see what PF  they're making~
