My 45 Long Colt black powder load for use in my 1858 Remmy with Kirst conversion cylinder.

28 -32 grains Swiss FFFg (depends on bullet, see below)
About 1/4" powder compression
0.030" card wad over powder
Bullet grooves with SPG, pan lubed (no lube wad used in a cartridge, ever)
Lymen 454190 bullet (250 grain - 20:1 alloy)
or
Lymen 452460 bullet (200 grain - 20:1 alloy)
Light roll crimp to prevent bullet backing out with recoil
