I got a SSK 38 spl in a 12 inch barrel. The reloading manuals give info for 4, 5 and 6 inch barrels using Unique, HS6, W231 and ect. Any suggestions on powder that would do better in the longer 12 inch barrel? I will shoot 125 jacketed and cast bullets in the 143 and 158 grain. Do I go to a faster powder or slower powder?

My Lyman handbook lists loads for a jacketed 158 gr bullet using 2400
starting load of 8.4 gr. up to max load of 9.4 gr.

38spl powder

Thanks Greg. Thats one that I haven't tried. 2400 would be a slower powder. Any more suggestion just pass them on. I would like to get one or two more choices so I can load 15 of each chosen powder and take out to the range
