    I normally use Bullseye (4.0g) in my 357 mag light target loads with 158g LSWC but wanted to give Titegroup a try. Can anyone suggest a good starting point? Would like to keep it around 900 FPS

    I've been using 4.5 gr. of TiteGroup with a 158 LSWC in a S&W 686 with very good results. It "should" be around a 1000 fps but I don't have a chrony. In any case, very accurate and easy shooting.

    i`ve been usin clays but figured titegroup a little slower so i thought i`d start at 4 grs under a homecast 12bhn boolit sized .3585.

    haven`t had a chance to shoot any yet though

    I load 5 grains Titegroup under lead SWC 158-gr. Don't have a chrony. No lead issues in my pistols. That's max, iirc, for lead and Titegroup.
