Try a good gun shop...peruse their manuals...buy the one that suits your needs. Short of that, go to Hodgen's powder data site and check their listings; 125 gr data is good for most manufactures...then work up you load, watching for telltale signs of excess pressure, and stopping when you reach the powder manuf's max.

Those are Remington's SJHPs and most any load recipe for 125s should work. Remmie 158s seat a tad deeper to the cannelure than Hornady's 158s so one must accomadate for the difference in case capacity, but I don't know about the 125s. Start low and work your way up and you should be fine.
