Default Meister Bullets .358 105gr. LFN

I have a box of 500 of these bullets for my 38 Special revolvers and plenty of Bullseye powder, but I'll be darned if I can find a single recipe in any of my reloading manuals or on the Internet for this combination of components. Could any of you folks please give me some suggestions as to a recipe or where I might be able to find one?

Thank you!

Closest thing I can find is a 92gr LRN (mold #356242) in a Lyman manual. Starting is 3.3 of BE for 765fps from a 4" bbl. Max is 5.3gr for 1110 out of a 4" bbl.

Lyman, yep! Keep checking for something there. I have 1000 148gr LWC from them (Meister) and when I called, they said to use Lyman data for their bullets. Other than that, I don't have anything that
Black_Talon didn't already say.

EDIT:
I just checked my 45th edition of Lyman (70's sometime).
They list a 112gr cast bullet #358425 (#2 alloy)
No COAL given.

B.E. 2.0=572 fps, 3.8=954 fps

Unique 3.5=682 fps, 6.9=1252

2400 8.0=656 fps, 12.5=1185 fps

SR 7625 3.2=476 fps, 4.9=742 fps

SR 4756 4.1=488 fps, 6.3=826 fps

IMR 4227 7.0=416 fps, 9.9=757 fps

I would think that anything in the middle of these charges would work. Lighter bullets typically (can) take a bit more powder.
One thought, most loads in this book have lower starting and higher max charges than you'll find in modern books. Why? Who knows, but they sure do CYA (or CTA, cover their ***) nowadays by being "safer".
