I'd be hesitant to try and push a wadcutter to 900 fps, the round is seated deeply so there's not much room in the case. reloadammo.com and handloads.com both show 3.3 gr. of Unique for 815 fps (source Alliant), that sounds a lot more reasonable. No point pushing an old Colt to its limits, they don't make them any more after all. If you have a gun chambered in .357 you might be able to push the velocity higher without fear of an "event".
