P*ul M said: Can anyone suggest a recipe for 250gn plated bullets for a 1873 .45 Pietta using either Unique or Power Pistol? I checked the Lee manual and it shows two differant powders for this bullet. I didn't want to buy yet another powder but rather use some that I have. Your input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Paul.

A suitable charge weight for plated bullets would likely be similar.
