9mm reloads with Win 231

I am reloading 9mm with lead bullets for a friend. I haven't reloaded lead in a long time. The 9mm bullets are 123.5 grain in weight. I can't find any information on how much Winchester 231 powder to load with that grain bullet. The best I could find was for 115 grain lead and 147 grain lead with that powder. Does anyone have any loading data for that grain lead bullet? Thanks.

I load 124 lead with 4.3gr of 231 for about 1060 fps out of a S&W 3913. Start with less, work up just in case....

Lee's 2nd edition reloading manual has a max load of 4.0 gr of 231 with a 124 gr bullet at 1035 fps. The starting load is 3.3 gr at 910 fps. Pretty mild load.
