I use 6 grains of Trail Boss as a good plinker load. It's has a mild recoil, (steel butt plate doesn't hurt) low noise and is accurate at 50 yards. It's about 900FPS. I also use the 21 grains of 4198 load, perfect speed and pressure for an older action.
I also use Trail Boss for the .45-70. 12 grains with a 405 grain slug fires to point of aim in my 1884 Springfield carbine, so I don't have to alter the front sight. Good load in my 1884 rifle, also.

Nice shootin'!! Looks like the Trail Boss load worked out good for you, it's accurate for sure!! As soon as I get some brass emptied out, got 200 loaded up with the 6 grain load, I might try bumping it up a couple grains and see what happens.
Your '93 looks a lot like mine, same lack of metal finish, but it's original and that's the way I like them.
