Light load for 357

Does anyone have a suggested load for a lead RNFP 125 gr. bullet using Unique or W231??

My other snake load is a 158 lead RNFP with 4.7 gr of Unique for about 1040 fps from my lever action carbine. But, I am having trouble finding data for this 125 gr bullet. I would like to achieve similar velocity...

Thanks!

Try about 4.2 grains of 231 or 4.4 grains of Unique.
