165 grain 9mm with CFE pistol?

Well I picked up 1k of 165 grain (yes, 165) and am trying to figure out a good starting load. I want to use CFE pistol powder, but I can't find any guys loading anything over 147 grain bullets. I normally load 147 grain with 4.3 grains of CFE.

I was thinking of starting at around 2.8 grains and then working up. Or should I start a little higher?

Don't have one. I don't really care what the velocity is. I go for what feels good, shoots good, and is accurate. I know what low power rounds feel like and I know what +p charges feel like.

Between that and inspecting brass, I can get a good load developed. So far that hasn't failed me for any caliber I load.
Then you've been lucky.
