I have loaded those in .357 Magnum using 9.5 grains of WSF.

I haven't tried them in .38 Special yet. 4.5 grains of Bullseye or 5.5 grains of Unique looks good on paper. W231 would also be a good powder to try.

I haven't loaded the 125s for a while, but I have loaded the 158gr Rem jhp recently.
The Rem 158gr jhp seats deeper in the case than say a Hornady XTP or Nosler, so if you are going off data for a different bullet I would be VERY cautious.
