I'm running 115 grain Rainiers with 4.3 grains of Universal. I use the same load with the Berry 124 grain bullets.

4.6 to 4.8 grains of W-231 under a 124 grain Rainier plated HP.

For plinking I load...
115 gr. Berry's fmc
4.3 gr. Bullseye
I found this load to most accurate in my p89.
Good luck and happy testing!

Sorry, I don't use any of those powders, but I do like my homemade 125gr cast bullets, so i will give you what I have.
This is below specs, is a very light load, but functions perfectly in my P01 with outstanding accuracy.
124gr cast wheel weight Lee Tumble lube round nose bullet, lubed with Lee Liquid Alox.
6.4 gr Accurate Arms #7
Lee FCD used.
Replicate at your own risk, etc. etc., but this one actually works very well for me, even though it's under some listed starting loads.
