Heavy Coated Bullets For GP-100

I'm just beginning reloading .357 and have some 158gr bullets to load up. Once I get through through those I do tend to favor heavier bullets, anyone know of some good coated options that are 180gr or up?

Also, any issues firing lead/coated with a GP100?

My GP100 with a six inch barrel doesn't do well with anything above 158 gr.
I have been using lead and hard cast bullets without any problems, just watch your velocities.
There are several companies that sell coated bullets, Coated Bullets - .38/.357 - snscasting and 38 CAL come to mind but they usually don't offer anything heavier than 158 gr.

Trying out Badman bullets for the round nose with speedloaders. Will just be making major in USPSA so won't be going past 1,100. Might dabble with some of Missouri's 180gr but we'll see how these do first.
