Help with pistol loading

I have some 147gr black talon bullets I would like to load for my .357. Does anyone have any idea what the original specs were on the factory loaded? I'll be loading these for a 6" GP-100 and a 2" EAA Windicator. Also I will be loading 145gr Winchester Silvertips for the same pistols, so any help with those would be welcome as well. Here's the catch, I have a pound of Bullseye as my only pistol powder for a while, so I would like to use it to load them. Any help would be appreciated.

What have you used before in loading .357 mag? Might be time to buy a reloading manual.

What I have been loading in 357 has been 158gr half jacket hp. Loaded with 6.5 gr of bullseye and a CCI 500 primer they have been pleasant to shoot and accurate enough for me. I don't have a chrono or access to one right now and am in the process of getting some manuals. I had some when I loaded not too long ago, but they did not get stored properly and are now lost to me. I've loaded 30-30 for years, as well as 7.62x39 and 9mm. Now I'm adding to that .223, and 308, 38, and 357.

I think i'd just weigh a few and use a starting load for a jacketed hollow point of the same weight, unless i'm missing something.

That's what I thought, just wanted to make sure before I did anything foolish. I haven't located the specs yet on the original ammo, I would like to load mine to match the original as close as possible, but without the specs....
