    Anyone have some good date for 357/38 using hp-38 or bullseye ?

    I have some berry's 158 gr plated hp, and some 125 gr plated hp

    Gun will be a Smith model 65 w/ 4" barrel

    I would use the lightest 357 data for the 158's. 38 Spl data for a copper covered 158 carries the risk of sticking a bullet in the barrel.

    For the 125's, any data from the powder manufacturer or loading manuals will be good if you don't load to the max of 357 data. All 38 data for 125 should be good to go.
