AA#5 for .38spl

Any suggestions for a .38spl load with DEWC's using AA#5 the Accurate website shows 3.6 to 4.0 but there listing is for DBB (double bevel base) WC's and mine are not bevel based. I've always heard the loads are totally different for bevel base and no.

You load all wadcutters exactly the same, except you can only load hollow-based ones lightly, and the solids can be loaded light or +P.
