Old West ammunition and loads

Okay, this is one period where I have little information regarding what kind of performance you'd get out of your ammunition.

What kind loads (bullet weights and velocities) would be available in, say, 1885, for:

.45 Colt
.44-40
.45-70
.38-55
.32-20

And others?

Thanks for any information.

Dude,

Why you double posting?

I originally posted this here, and nobody responded in several days. I posted it in the revolver forum, and I've gotten five responses overnight.

I had forgotten that this forum gets little traffic.
