I am having trouble finding Load data for 148 GR double end Wad Cutters. I am going to use Tite Group. Wondering what the seating depth is I have seen Wad Cutters flush in the case. This is my first foray into revolver reloading. Any Help would be Great!!!:)

You just use any data you can find for 148 solid base wadcutters.

Lyman #49 says 3.1 Start - 3.5 MAX.

Your bullets very likely have one or two lube grooves filled with grease, a crimp groove with no grease on both ends.

That is where you should seat them too.

Hollow base wad-cutters are often seated flush.
I prefer to seat them out about 1/8" for better cylinder throat alignment.

I do the same, my DEWC are seated in the crimp groove about 1/8" out of the case.
