New guy with a key holing issue out of a USP.

My crimp is good; not to extreme or light. Just enough to have a smooth round chamber. My initial reaction is that I don't have enough powder charge with the rounds and was thinking of moving on to Unique powder.
I got the plated 115 from Rocky Mountain reloading, but will be looking into Precision Delta in the future. Funny thing is, the plated 45ACP I get works great in my S&W M&P .45. I mean stupid accurate.

What velocity are you getting with the rounds? Bumping up may help.
Great things happen when you are not thinking about fast or slow and are just paying attention.

I am using Montanna gold 115gr fmj with 4.8gr of unique out of my 9mm USP. Not any signs of key holing. Unique is a dirty powder, use frog lube and the carbon wipes off. I finally cleaned my USP after 1600rnds, i wanted to see how long it would take to jam up, but i couldnt stand to see it so dirty.
I'm going to try and use unique next loading session and bump it up a little. I understand it gets dirty, but I have some good solvent to fix that.
I do not have a chrono, and I couldn't tell what the length of the crimp is. But I can tell you that the crimp is light but noticeable.
