I'm thinking of loading up a couple hundred rounds of .357 Sig. I'd like to use load data from handloads.com. The powders and charges would be for 124/125 grn bullets:

Power Pistol - 8.5, 8.9, 9.3
Bullseye - 6.1, 6.4, 6.7

Another website lists loads similar to these but the reference material was from an Alliant 95-96 manual. The current Alliant manual, as well as my Nosler and Sierra book either don't list loads with these powders or list the max charge at about over a grain less than the minimum load above.

I wanted to get higher velocities than the high 1200s listed in my current manuals and am wondering if anyone has any experience with these powders and charges. Will be shooting from a P226.

Sierra 5th edition has loads up to 1550 fps depending on bullet weight.

Same manual has PowerPistol at 7.5 grn with 125grn JHP going at 1250fps.
