The standard commercial .45-90 round utilized a 450 grain bullet with a charge of 90 grains of black powder, to give a velocity of around 2000 feet per second.

Or, a 450-500 at about 1300' ( from my 28" single shot ) ;)
From a SS, yes. The 1886 was designed as an express rifle and it's best suited for ~300 grain bullets.
