Load for a 154gr Lswc for a 357 mag

I am trying to find target loads for some 154 gr Lead semi wad cutters I have.
I am somewhat new to reloading. I can only find reload data to 146-150 grain
bullets and then 158 to 160 grain bullets. Could I use the higher Grain bullet
data and reduce by 10%. All help appreciated.

You can safely use the same load data for your 154 gr lead, as what you see for the 158 lead. The diff isn't that much, technically you would be slightly less load as you get a lighter bullet. But, go with the starting load for a 158 gr lead SWC and you will be just fine.
