Depends on the goal I guess .
I have ;
MP 462-425 @ 417
Lyman 458193 @ 415
Lee 458-340 @ 350
NOE 460-543 @ 535 , copy of the 458132 AJN3
MM 453-350 @ 350 , I paper patched it.
454613 @ 385 , it’s a HB Minie paper patched it’s a nice plinker.
465451 …… haven’t cast it yet it might be for the Chessipot .
I had a 458-405 HB this didn’t work out at all .

In the 1895 the 458193 was instant gratification fast , slow , its just too not slippery .
The 543 NOE is slipperier and shoots well enough but even sized and patched there’s too much nose length and I worry about the band slam chamber ring .
The MP took a little longer the solid is a lever gun mid and up bullet . The HB is 380 gr and takes a full top TD and a little bit to run well .
