Since your using a non gas checked bullet. At speeds where Linotype lead should be used in the cast. (BHN-22) Alliant Blue Dot would be my suggestion. This powder does work well with standard non-magnum primers in the 38 Spec loads with the same bullet mentioned in this thread. I see no reason that Blue Dot shouldn't offer the same results with the use of (again) standard non-magnum primers in the 357 loadings. Near 1200fps speeds your wanting. My Ref material: Lyman 3rd edition Cast Bullet Handbook. Maybe someone has a better choice in powders? As this is just my answer to your question. SSMcG
