This Hornady 225 gr FTX Leverevolution (http://www.hornady.com/store/45-Colt-225-gr-FTX-LEVERevolution) round's performance specs might be what you would want to match. My Henry likes them.

Titegroup should perform well, and should be the most accurate.
Lyman Book 49th edition:
255 grain cast, #2 alloy (this is a hard bullet)
Start at 5.6 (933fps)
Max at 6.2 (1009 fps)
Large pistol primers
Pick your poison.
I use a lot of Titegroup, the thing is that it doesn't use much room and a double charge may go un-noticed. When using Titegroup, always be aware. Very aware.

For full power loads with the .45 Colt, I generally use Unique with a 255gr. SWC. For lighter "cowboy" type loads, I use the same bullet with Trailboss. Trailboss is bulky enough that a double charge is unlikely, and even a double charge shouldn't be enough to be dangerous.

Thank you all!

8 grs of 231 with a 200 gr bullet used to keep the grandkids entertained for about as long as it took them to blow thru a couple hundred rounds.

Great, I got plenty of W231/HP-38.
I picked up some Red Dot and Herco. I figured these would be good for 45 Colt loads too and I kinda like the cans. :D
