That W296 data looks like the old load data we used to load the 110/125 SuperVel bullets back in the day. Only we used H-110. I'd approach those loads with caution----------------!

Personally I discourage getting your load data from such sources.

All of the major powder and bullet makers list data on their site. It is reasonably safe to use data for other bullets of same weight especially in the 125 grain weight class.

Data on MD's site isf NOT pressure tested and as such shouldn't be considered safe unless double checked with other sources that are pressure tested.

all other load data only shows hornady 125 xtp, they also say they are reduced charges because the xtp is a longer bullet, in the 357 the depth from nose to base between mine and the xtp is almost a .25 inch which definitely would cause a pressure difference. would i be getting the performance using a shorter bullet.
