Canon P shutter curtain speeds

Wondering if anyone knows the recommended curtain travel time for a Canon P shutter? I've seen numbers of around 12 msec for a Leica IIIf curtain. Same ballpark for the Canon p? The dry-as-a-bone camera I recently posted about has taken well to being lubed, and curtain speeds were around 15-17 msec. So I tightened them up to around 12 msec, got them running at the same speed +/- 5%. Just looking for confirmation/advise about the 12 msec number. New to focal plane shutters like this so don't want to blow the thing up. Thanks.
