Just got back from shooting an odd selection of guns: Old Army;OM .41 Mag Blackhawk; Mini 14; and MK 2 .22. This was by far the best group of the day, 10 shots from my .41 Magnum OM Blackhawk, all in one hole. The gun is still warm in the picture. I put a white outline rear sight on her last night, painted the front sight with orange fingernail polish, and now look what she can do!

Nice shooting Tim, what is the velocity of that load--about 900 fps ?
I really have no clue. I don't have a cronograph, and I had to guess at the load because none of my 4 manuals have a load for a 210 grain lead bullet. So, I started pretty low and left it there. It is a very mild shooting load, but enough to let you know your shooting a real gun.

Here are three on line references:

You are right about the lack of information for your Unique & 210 lswc combo as most loads are listed for JHP bullets. Please understand that you cannot use a max load listed for a jacketed bullet with a lead bullet.
Having said that, your load looks well down the scale from max. How does it look in the case for % of capacity? If about 1/2 full or less, you might consider filler material. From the look of the target it is igniting just fine.

Are you kidding? I don't sell guns that shoot that good! Besides, I just got through fitting a steel grip frame to her.
