I shoot several 45LC Blackhawks. Most are the 4.62" barrel, but a couple are 6.5" ones(think). Most of the time I shoot 16.5 grains of #9 under a 255 grain cast Kieth style bullet (Lyman mold). But do shoot some 17.0 and 17.3 stuff on occassion with the same bullet. 98% of the stuff I shoot in the 45LC is cast lead. Also shoot some #7 with the same bullet for a nice plinking round that has a mild recoil (14.5 grains @ 1080fps). I don't own the mold, so can't give you the P/N. A guy I know casts them for me every couple years, and sizes them as well. One of these days I'll do my own!
