OtherMikey: I got along better with Red Dot in my 45 Colt than any other powder I tried for light loads. Tested over a chronograph, there was very little difference in velocity whether the powder was against the primer, or up front. I don't think you'd have much trouble using a filler in a straight wall case like the 45 Colt, as long as you use enough to make the bullet compress the filler, but I've seen lots of stories about bottleneck rifle cases, fillers, and ringed chambers. Fillers can cause problems in a revolver, at times binding the cylinder up in the frame, unless you use something that doesn't melt.
