Mine is 2.8 Grains bullseye, 38 special case, CCI 500 primer, 148 grain Speer Hollow base wadcutter. For extra fun, put the wadcutter in upside down, makes a great pop can filled with water load!!
This is a very accurate target load, and when you buy the lead in bulk, it makes for a very economical load. :D

I like the Montana Gold bullet 158 gr CMJ for both loads:

for .38 spl I use 3.7 grains of Hodgon Titegroup, CCI primer

for .357 mag I use 5.6 grains of Hodgdon Titegroup, CCI primer.

both loads perform very well.
