My Lyman cast bullet handbook has no .38 Special loads for 105 grain, but does for 92 grain. Max loads: 700-X, 5 grains; Bullseye, 5.3 grains; Red Dot, 5.2 grains, 231, 5.7 grains. It shows all those are fairly low pressure, less than 17000 CUP, and MVs in the 1100-1150 ft/sec range. Even if 105 grain bullets are used, these Lyman loads should be quite safe. Might want to drop back a half-grain or so to start.
