Hi all... y'all probably get this question once a week, but I am looking for consolidated advice on an over-the-counter bullet choice for the Marlin 1894 .45 Cowboy Limited (despite everything being out of stock at the moment).

Thanks for the advice in advance.

jiminicrow---------since ya posted in cowboy rifles I'm supposing ya want ammo for sass matches------I got same rifle--(had it & used it bout 12 years now)----I started out buying commercial reloads from mullins ammo. in Clintwood Va. they got a website so i suppose they still in business--been reloading my own for 10 years now--so haven't bought any store bought since then----what i got from them back then was pretty good stuff--------my experiences w/ Marlin in 45 colt is if load is a lite one it will very often blow gases back in ya face----tried several things of different crimp etc. but wound up using 250 gr lead bullet loaded to about 800 fps or so---no blowback!!!
