I just bought some 140 gr TC Missouri Bullets for my 40sw. The only load data I have found so far is with ramshot Zip & Accurate #2 and #5. I have WST, WSF, Longshot, and 231 on hand. I figure one of these has to be a good fit. Can anyone help point in the right direction with any of these powders. Thanks

Again, Lyman #49 has lead bullet data for every caliber.
If you plan to reload lead, you need to get a copy.

Hodgdon website has 155 jacketed bullet data for your powders.
You can safely use the starting load data with 140 cast lead bullets.

I've been using 5gr of WST for those specific bullets, seated at 1.125" with CCI SPP.

Very pleasant to shoot, and accurate out of my full size S&W M&P. I get an average of 1,020fps in temperate weather (I'll need to chrono again when it gets really cold, since WST is inverse temperature-sensitive).
