I just picked up a Ruger #1 and I was wondering if anyone had a good load for the 45-70 in the mid to high end range using 400 grain cast bullets and surplus powder (Hi-Tech or Bartlett). I would like to use surplus powder, since I plan on shooting this rifle quite a bit. I do have quite a bit of WC820, and assume that I can use it for the low end loads (using 2400 data as a start).

Bartlett lists powders with H322, H335 and IMR3031 burning rates, but I have not been able to find any posts regarding their use.

Also, can someone suggest a load for fire lapping the barrel using either bullseye or 700-x.
