just found out that clear polypropylene has a melting point of 160 degrees C, that's 320 degrees Fahrenheit, how hot does M&P get?

M&P can get SUPER hot. You should be OK if you let it cool a bit before you pour. If you pour too hot it will sorta shrivel, distort, contort, twist. But then again, if you pour too hot it will also distort molds that are made for M&P soap.

+1.
You might consider using a candy thermometer to make sure you're not getting it too hot.
