Lyman does not list a 45-60 smokeless load. The Winchester 1876 for which that round was developed used a toggle link action similar to the 1873, but strengthened. It is not as strong as the later 1886. Stay with black powder. My loading notes indicate that I could easily fit 60 grains into the modern cases I had. Many modern cases have lower capacity than their balloon head ancestors. A 300 grain bullet (got mine from Buffalo Arms) over 60 gr FFg is no mouse fart load.
