Default Hornady Load Data Request - XTP 38 Caliber (357) 125gr #35710

Hornady XTP Bullets 38 Caliber (357 Diameter) 125 Grain Jacketed Hollow Point

Hornady #: 35710



My first time loading for a .357 / .38 so I would appreciate some Hornady load data to cross check against the powder manufacture data and my Speer manual.

Thanks.

I'm looking for a snapshot of the Hornady load book...

I really don't know what powder, this is a new caliber for me.

I have Unique, Bullseye, W231, WST, and WSF available for use...

Revolver for .38 Special and .357 Magnum

ranger341... you are awesome, Just what I needed. (which edition is this manual)

I cant believe I don't have a single compatible powder based on the Hornady manual for .357 Mag...

My Speer #14 manual does list Unique and W231 for their 125gr weight bullets... but I wish Hornady listed a load so I could cross check.

Rwnielsen... thanks for the link as well. It did work.

Unique is OK. Not getting the max that 357 mag is capable of, but not too far off with a revolver (short barrel). All your present powders are relatively fast for magnum pistol rounds.

The WSF might be OK too.

Just use the Alliant load data for Unique and 125gr GD 's. Alliant lists loads for 38spl, 38spl +P and 357M. That will give you the most flexibility and decent velocities up through 357. Faster powders can be used in any o those cases for nice light target loads. My favorite target powder for the 357 is W231/HP38.

This is the 8th Edition. Here's a burn rate chart. Nice tool when looking for alternate powders.

Here is another burn rate chart that I find a little easier to see comprable powders by manufacturer. Burn Rate Chart - from Vihta Vuori Guide.pdf
