i just got a box of berry's bullets 125gr flat/point
i would like to load these in 357mag brass but i
want a mild load like a 38 special just to punch paper
with i would like to use Bullseye powder

6.5 Bullseye should give you about 850 FPS according to the Lyman #49 Manual.

thank you rc

I can't see how that is right. 6.5 grains of Bullseye seems much too high to me. I use 3.5 grains of Bullseye for my .38 loads.

Its the listed starting load for a 125 grain XTP jacketed bullet in Lyman #49.
Shows 864 FPS - 21,000 CUP.

5.4 gr Zip and 7.3 gr of AA#5 works well in my S&W629; Model 19 and my Colt Trooper III. COAL of 1.555"

i found a load for a 125gr castboolit in my Lyman #43
2.5gr of bullseye at 800fps /4.7gr at 1125

Load it to 1.560 and use 3.8 to 4.0 Grs of Red Dot, Clays, 700X, Solo 1000, American Select, WST, Competition, Bullseye, etc
Use a light taper crimp. No more than .002 or .003. Light and accurate. If you want more than a light .38, use medium speed powders, and .38 Spl data.
