Bad idea

Barnes bullet construction and length make for a bad translation from other bullets in other loading manuals.

Case(s) in Point for that 6-inch/357Mag the OP mentions:

Speer 125 TMJ
Alliant 2400/15.7gr
OAL:1.59"
Vel: 1,545fps
Press: 31,000psi

Ditto all the above except use
Barnes 125 TAC-XP
Vel: 1,816fps
Press: 59,000 psi

The OP's friend might get the hint by noting first that he couldn't even come close to getting 15.7gr of 2400 in the case -- with that Barnes bullet at that OAL -- to start with.
