Not sure how many have any VV 3N38, but it does well:

(Gen4 G35 w/6" KKM G24 bbl)

165gr Gold Dot, 10.7gr 3N38 @ 1.150" : 1,392 fps avg (7 fps ES!)

175gr Win STHP, 9.8gr 3N38 @ 1.140": 1,288 fps avg (17 fps ES!) 645 ft-lbs (Winchester claims 1290 for their 10mm load, yet only does about 1150 fps, here I'm getting it!)

180gr LaserCast RNFP hardcast (.38-40 bullet), 9.8gr 3N38 @ 1.135": 1,338 fps avg (9 fps ES!) 715 ft-lbs

180gr Hornady XTP, 9.5gr 3N38 @ 1.150" : 1,269 fps avg (13 fps ES!)

200gr WFNGC, 8.5gr 3N38 @ 1.150" : 1,195 fps avg (10 fps ES!)

If you want to make your .40 feel like a 9mm -P, 3.8gr TiteGroup with a 180gr @ 1.140". So soft it almost tickles.
