Good Load for 45LC Rifle and Pistol

Is there such a thing as a good 45 LC load to use in both my Uberti 1873 Rifle and my Berreta Stampede SAA??

For CAS with Ruger and Winchester in .45colt, I use any good lead bullet from 200gr to 240gr over a load of 5.5gr of 700X. Works good for me. Quantrill

You can always go buy a box of Ultramax cowboy loads. Winchester makes them, and they'll hit about 850 fps from my 4.75 inch barrelled Colt.

Thanks guys, any other thoughts out there. I prefer to role my own rather than buy them, and when possible I prefer to cast my own bullets too.
