125 grain data will work fine if you stay away from the very top end. I've shot several thousand 135 grain TC from .38 Special cases over 3.5 grains of Bulleye. That's a fine light target load. I shot PPC a few seasons with that load, swapping a tiny bit of accuracy and a full diameter hole for faster reloads, lighter recoil, and a flatter trajectory.

Truth to tell, I would start with 3.5 grains of any of the fast pistol powders, Bullseye, Red Dot, 231, AA-2, Trap 100, etc. and work up to about 4.0 grains looking for accuracy.
