Bullets for Guide Gun

Slipped away from the keyboard long enough to load some 45-90 BPCR rounds with the cast bullets I sweated over last weekend. After I put the BP away I spotted some primed 45-70 cases and decided my BPCR shouldn't get to have all the fun. I'll be testing some new jacketed bullets in my Guide Gun tomorrow, might as well run some cast bullets through it too. Loaded up some mild 2400 loads (30 grains) just to see how they'll do. Never fired cast bullets in this rifle, should be able to push them a bit faster if needed. Guess some other powders could be better, been thinking about 5744, any other favorites for light-medium loads under cast bullets?
Can't wait for Lyman's new cast bullet handbook to come out, need another loading manual.

My favorite recipes start out with a handful of used wheelweights.
