My Evil friend has had me shooting his cowboy guns...  I have a USFA that should be in next week.  I am not wanting to use "cowboy" loads.  I am looking for a real .45LC load, but not a Ruger level load: 200 grains ~ 950fps or 230 or so ~900 from 4 3/4".  These things should be able to clock at least what my .45acp does.  I am looking for powder suggestions.  I hate Unique because it is so dirty.  I am looking for something that would also work in my .357 and .45acp.  Suggestions for powers and manuals? HS-6? 3n37?  I figure it should be somewhere between Unique and Bluedot. Anything I should stay away from besides evil friends?

Clays, Universal, WST,  same wt. levels 5 thru 9 grs. depending on what you want as final velocity-- very wide range not sensitive to density.
