My general purpose load for a .357 Magnum was a 158gr LSWC. Usually loaded with a stiff charge of H110 or AA#7. Don't remember the charge as I don't have access to my reloading log books. I normally carried either a Smith K frame (3" 65 or 4" 66) or my Coonan auto. That suited my needs in Kentucky/Tennesse at the time.
