Load data for WSF ???

I acquired a new three pound canister of Winchester Super Field recently at a price I couldn't turn down. I've found load data for the .45ACP but nothing else. Does anyone have any suggestions for starting to medium loads for the following:

.38 Special
.357 Magnum
.45 Colt

Only thing I need is the powder charge weights for a given bullet weight. I can handle all the other stuff such as primer, case length, overall length, etc.

Hodgdon has it in their data.

I did a second look and it is only listed in 45 ACP in your list of calibers. Sorry.

BUT, since Hodgdon is the distributor, contact them and ask. I have always had a response from them.

Bottom right of screen is the load data section for that powder . I don't see 38/357 but do see 9mm .
If Jesus had a gun , he'd probably still be alive !

I almost always write my posts regardless of content in a jovial manor and intent . If that's not how you took it , please try again .

I suspect the lack of data is because of all the empty space there would be in the longer cases mentioned. It could be that WSF is too position-sensitive in charge weights that would be appropriate for them. Mind you, I don't know that. Just speculating.
