    I've used an old butcher knife to do it. Drill a hole less than half diameter of the buckshot, center the blade, and give it a whack with a chunk of wood.

    Hot loads are defined three criteria. First and most important is safety. SAAMI for the 45 Colt is 14,000 PSI due to the older Colt 1873's. On a side note that is too "hot" for the original Blackpowder Frame 1873 Colts per Colt. The SAAMI...

    Hornady One-Shot spray is all I use. I do find the directions stating 1 minute dry time is enough may be an issue. Ten minutes is much better. Some good discussion here https://www.ar15.com/forums/armory/-/42-305248/

    When using Hornady One Shot following the directions may be the problem. The directions state letting it dry for one minute. I tend to do large batches at a time. A ten minute dry time is good but I normally do 1/2 hour dry time. If you don't...

    9.5 is Alliant's max is 9.5 but keep in mind that is for the very low SAAMI pressures of the 45 Colt. Both your rifles are good to at least three times that pressure.

    The S&W M25 in 45 Colt has relatively thin cylinders walls. 25K seems to be commonly agreed max for them. Blackhawks will handle more. 1200 fps with cast and Lil' Gun is a Hodgdon recommend safe load for Blackhawks.
