Although Red Dot is a very fast powder, it's bulky. I've used it in loads for 45 Colt which I wanted to keep down in the 800fps region. Don't know if Blue Dot bulks up as well as Red Dot does, but it's a lot slower, and might work if you can locate some data for it. Most regular rifle powders need lots more pressure than you're going to be running to burn cleanly - which is the reason 4895 left so much partly consumned powder in the bore.
