As you are aware, the majority of the load data for 125-gr .38 Spcl loads are for jacketed bullets. The typical soft-recoiling .38 Spcl load is the classic match round with a 148-gr LWC over 2.7-gr of Bullseye at around 730 FPS. With Missouri's 125-gr TCFP, 3.1-gr of Bullseye will give your young lady about 775 FPS.

With respect to your first BP C&B revolver: the Colts sure are pretty; but, the simpler Remington '58 may be a better choice for the beginner.
