Good question. I have limited experience but this is what I have worked with.

IMR4227 Leaves unburned powder in 1894 barrel. I am scared that could cause damage by errosion.

Universal. Seems to be clean and at 9.5 with a 220 gr bullet it ought to be a good load. 1894 shoots 4 inch and better if I am at 50 yds. I shot today at 100 yds but had trouble with the target out that far with iron sights. Still did 4 out of 6 rounds inside 4 inches but not on zero. Shoots groups better than me at 25 yds in the SBH.

Green Dot. Shoots very accurate low power lead loads. Good for this in mag and specials. I like the smoke.
