I am starting to reload some 357's with 231 powder, I have never use this powder before. The bullet
is 158 grain cast out of wheel weights and is a semi wad cutter. The Hodgen charts shows that I can
use 5 grains. Has anyone used this charge or do you think that this would be a good one to start with.

that is always the safest way to go... I like to play with, or test the loads... I run with 3 to 6 books depending upon who had data for the load I am working on... i will start out by writing down all of the min and max numbers for every book i have... then I will average them for a base high, and a base low, then average that, and start there...then I will go higher by small increments usually I do 10 rounds at any given powder/bullet combo then i mark them, and work through them on paper until i find the one that shoots best.. then thats what I stay with... for instance
my 30-30 does not like the max load listed for 150 flat nose bullets.. it likes almost a full grain less for max accuracy... but for the 140 grain ftx poly tips.. it likes them right at the edge of max!

Thanks for the information I only have a little over 2 pounds of the 335 and then I will have to use something else. All of the shops around here are out of the 335. I am hoping by the time I run out of the 335 they will have some more in. I haven't decided on which powder to try out next.
