Anybody have a recipe for this bullet coming out of a 2" bbl.? I have some extra H110 and thought I'd play with it.

I have no recipes for this combo. H110 and 2" BBL will not work very well with each other. Maybe try Unique or Bullseye for such a short barrel. The H110 needs more length to ignite as it is slower burning than most. NOTE: I stated "very well"

I'll save the H110 for the 6" gun. I have PLENTY of Unique so maybe I'll play with it and the 2".

Unique is a very good powder for that bullet weight. Try the Alliant web site for the data needed and you will find many. I like the clean burn.

Loading for the 2" barrel as well as the 125gr. bullet is new to me. For years, in .357, It's always been 8" or the carbine using 158 gr. bullet with 2400 or H110

You can use H110 in a short barrel even though no "magnum" powder will completely burn without a 5" barrel. Make up your favorite .357 Magnum round using H110 and use it in all your .357 Magnum guns. If it's a good load it's a good load.

If you are looking for a round that will burn most of the powder in a short barrel you will need a faster powder like said above. I've gotten good results using HS-6.
