I was wondering if anyone has any load recommendations for 2.5" or 4" revolvers. I should be able to get a few types of bullets, H&N 158 pc SWC, 158 JHP and ares 158 coated FP. For powders I can get titegroup, N310 and N320. I had previously used N310 with the SWC and it was accurate but snappy, very light loads are possible with the ares, although I don't feel they are as accurate. I haven't tries the H&N JHP yet but am planning to start.
I'd probably like to use one bullet for all competitions from the 5 shot to distinguished as it is expensive to get them shipped here, am I being realistic?

I'm using 3.5gns of AP50 (International/Hogdons) behind a coated 158 SWC. I find 310 a little snappy also but the AP50 is more than manageable and will hold a little over X ring at 25.

3.5 Hodgdons PB seated 1.460 or to crimp groove on SWC, with roll crimp, good Distinguish load also.
3.3 BE works pretty good too. Federal or Win. Western primers.
3.5 Red Dot
