According to my copy of IHMSA's "Reloading Guide for Handgun Accuracy", the following was used to shoot a perfect score in Unlimited using the Hornady 129 SPFB:

powder start most frequent max primer
4895 24.0 26.0 27.0 CCI-400

AS ALWAYS, WORK UP TO THE LISTED CHARGES

I've had good luck with 120nbt's, rem 7 1/2 primers and 8208 and n540 powders in my T/C.
