Taffin is the one the mentions 4227 in his books. 20g is actually a 'standard' load in .45 Colt. Not as much muzzle blast as you might think. I get 1030fps out of my tests. It does leave a few 'granules' hanging around, but I don't mind at all.

Here is an on-line reference. Yes, you can use the H4227 data for IMR 4227. Should use a magnum primer with it for consistency.
