Default Re: 45 lc load

Would I need a special bullet and lubricant and do I need to use a wad to protect the bullet base. What about filler?

If your not part of the solution, your part of the precipitate.

You need a bullet with BP lube unless you are using the fake stuff. The 454190,452664 Lyman or 45-230-cm from RCBS will all work with correct lube. The revolver will get by with several of the market lubes that are for sale. It's when you get into rifle that it's more of a problem. You don't need a filler or wad for pistol ammo and BP loading. There are many fine books that cover this and I would suggest that you buy one before loading any ammo. The complete Blackpowder Handbook 5th edition is one by Sam Fadala, Shooting Sixguns of The Old West(my favorite) by Mike Venturino is another. Just remember that there is no coming back from the "DARKSIDE"

I know this is a old post but I was looking for confirmation on what I was told long ago because I'm going to reload 45LC now as well. I was told fill the case for a light pack (no loose black powder loads) when the bullet is set, sounds like it was good advice.
