Uberti- Colt Lightning .45

I am at a loss as to what powder I should look at to push a 250 gr. jacketed bullet down the 24 inch barrel..........the faster the better.

Any clue's will be appreciated.
Air goes in and out. Blood goes 'round and 'round.
Any variation on this is a very bad thing.

LoL@Civil War Life. That is what I use when I want to shoot black powder.

The powders I have used are: Universal, 700-X, TiteGroup, FFFg and FFg.

Consult the powder manufacturers website AND a reloading manual. Both will give you the velocities you can expect from the load. (Look at their test Barrel length.)
