New at reloading Handgun Ammo and looking for suggestions on the Powder to use. Looking to shoot 185gr. Hollow Point and 165gr Range Ammo.

For accuracy, Silhouette has been the best. Any powder slower than AA5 and faster than AA7 is good. Power Pistol, BE86, and True Blue have also been very good, but Silhouette has been the most accurate over every bullet weight I've tested.
Others will argue, but I find .40 S&W to be rather finicky with fast powders (AA5 and faster) at loadings over mid-range from start to max.
155gn and 175gn L-SWCs have been very accurate.
145-155gn JHPs have been very accurate.
Good luck finding powders or bullets.
