Recipe for loading blackpowder .45 Colt rounds:

Step 1. Obtain empty .45 Colt case
Step 2. Fill case to just below the mouth with fffg or ffg blackpowder of your choice
Step 3. Place 250 or 255 grain bullet that has black powder compatible lube of your choice in the lube groove on the case mouth opening. (note: the bigger the lube groove in the bullet the more lube the bullet will carry, and the better it will work in a rifle)
Step 4. Seat bullet to crimp groove and crimp
Step 5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 till you run out of either a. Empty cases; b. Black Powder; or c. Bullets.
