.38/.357 bullet weight and profile suggestions

I've been reloading .45 ACP on a Dillon, Square Deal press for a couple years now. I use Titegroup and Montana Gold jacketed JFP bullets. I'm going to start reloading for .38 special (and maybe .357) for my new Colt SAA with a 7.5" barrel. In the past I had always stuck with jacketed bullets since that's what my friends used. But here recently I've been considering cast lead bullets due to the much lower cost.

• What bullet weight would you suggest for a target/plinker?

• What bullet profile for the same?

158 grain Semi-Wad-Cutters or lighter round nose, etc. Thanks in advance for any response.
