LSWC 14.6 grH-108 1,455 fps1.665" CCI SPM guest
This load is for Freedom Arms Revolvers ONLY. The OAL is too long for some revolvers and seating the bullet deeper would create higher pressures. RCBS 357 180gr, WW w/2% tin, oven heat treated, 24+ BHN works well. VEL 1455fps - SD 8 - ES 25. Chrono test for 25 shots.

I shoot this out of a S&W 627PC 8 shot and a Taurus Tracker 7 shot 6.5 inch barrel and have had no problems. Load is very accurate and not much more recoil than a 158gr. bullet.
