    Hi Mike,
    What does your load manuals say about it?

    Lee manual says on .357 start 5.5g max 5.5g. 980 fps. No room for error there.

    .41 mag 7.4g start 1226fps 8.4g max 1375fps

    Dont know if those are good loads or not but its all I could find. Go to IMR's site and see what they have to say.
