    RL7 was my favorite for hotter 45-70 loads. Get yourself a Lyman's reloading manual. Tons of good info there.

    Are you shooting it in a high wall?

    Oops! I thought it said 1885, not 1895. That's a pretty strong gun, but the reason I asked has to do with the 3 (or 2) different power levels that many manuals have. If you wanted to PM me your e-m ail address, I could scan and send the pages to you.

    Do your cast bullets have gas checks?

    If you were somehow able to get on the internet, proprietary data is available.
    Good luck.

    Here's a "for instance." 37.0gr of RE-7 under a 325gr FTX and a CCI350 in my 16" 458SOCOM does 1630fps all day. The Socom runs max pressure of 35,000psi, which, is pretty low, and this load is not even close to that. Confirmed with chrono. :)
