54 cal: Minie, Maxi or other

Looking to get my 54 cal front stuffer out this winter for range fun and a hunting tune up.

Mine is a Lyman GPH with a 1:32 twist. I really like it and thought about selling for a "real" gun or an inline but, I'm thinking about getting it back into action instead!

So, Goex 2F is an obvious powder choice, but what bullet? I'm looking for something with second shot capability without cleaning.

I have shot Minie, Maxi and some sabots before. I forget what it liked best. I thought Minie, but now unsure. I would like to buy 100 and develop a load...ideas?

Also, I have always used real BP. If I try Pyrodex, etc, what is different?
