Your 231 will be just fine with the 170 gr Lyman bullet for a mid range
load at 1,000 fps in your Ruger. You had a good plan from the beginning
to start at around 5.0 grs and work up to a charge weight that yields
your 1,000 fps in your strong revolver. Why bring it here for the naysayers to pick apart? You will never even come close to the 35,000
psi limit for the .357 with 231 and your cast bullet and you have a
chronograph to tell you when you're where you want to be. Go for it
and report back.
