Hornady site didn't cover this caliber. Anyone have any data?

I have W231, Power Pistol and H110.

Much Thanks!

This if for the FTX bullets.

Beg, borrow, or steal a copy of Speer's #14 Reloading Manual. It covers the 140 gr bullet with loads for all three of your powders. The Speer and Lyman Manuals are my go to books when researching a new load.

If you want a good "short barrel" .357 Magnum load using a 140gr jacketed bullet try 8.8gr Power Pistol. That load will develop ~1000 fps from a 2" barrel and is nowhere near the MAX charge.

Spend 20 bucks and get a copy of Lyman's 49 Edition...

I've got the Lyman 49th, but I figured the 357 bullet was like the 30-30 160gr FTX, in that, it needed special data.

8.5-9.5 Power Pistol looks like plenty to get 1000-1200fps to match factory load.

Sorry, I should have mentioned it was the FTX bullet. Not sure if there is much difference to the XTP/JHP bullet.

O K...Start with the low end of the powder charge for the 140 grain bullet and work up watching for over pressure signs.

I load two 140 grain bullets for both .38 Special and .357 magnum. One is the Remington SJHP and the other is the Hornady 140 grain XTP. Both bullets have the same velocity with the same powder charge +/- 50 fps.

This is for the S&W 19-5 model. So I was hoping for PP or W231 loads.

Much thanks.

Anyone have a COL for these bullets?

Look at the scanned in data I posted above, its there.

For revolvers a COAL is determined by the location of the cannelure or crimp groove. As long as they don't stick out beyond the end of the cylinder when chambered its good. Mostly its a worthless piece of information.
