For now I only reload for one revolver caliber, and that's .45 Colt, and for that I use Trail Boss.
Am I paranoid? Nope, I'm heavily armed!

In that case it is impossible to have an overload, book load or not.

Trail Boss, AA#5, Bullseye have all worked very well for me.

In the 45 Colt I use TB for my fooling around load and H110 and Lil'Gun for the serious stuff. I want to work up some TB loads for the 44 Magnum rifle I don't shoot the Contender that much any more.

I've found that 6.5 - 7.0 gr of Trail Boss work well in my 20" R92 44 mag, and worked well in my formerly owned Ruger Super Red Hawk. Depending on bullet profile I think the 7.0 gr is near (just not quite) the max load to avoid compressing/crushing the powder and possibly having an undesired event while shooting. It's a very manageable, lower velocity load.
