Original .45 Schofield?

Hey all,
I've been looking around (or trying to) at load data for .45 Schofield and I would like to load something close to what it originally was. From what I gather it was a 200 to 250 grain bullet with around thirty or so grains of black powder. Any thoughts? If you've got any loading recipes I would love to hear 'em
