230 grn Speer Gold Dots

What powder is the closest match to factory loads with these bullets? The factory Gold Dots are the most accurate to date in my Springfield, and I have about 300 of these bullets I've been hording and would like to load up some practice rounds.

There is no way to know what powder is used in factory loads. They probably do not even use the exact same powder for every different lot that they load.
Don't believe anything you hear and only half of what you see.

If you chrony your loads, and they chrony at the same m.v. as the factory 230gr. Gold Dots, then the accuracy should be just about as good, also.
