For my HiWall I like a 265 grn Bullet with 10.0 unique. If I need a bit more knockdown I use a 310 grn Bullet, still 10.0 Unique. But not quite as accurate. 
 

for lever guns I use a 245 or 255 grn Bullet with 9.6 Unique.

Starline Brass

7.5 gr Unique

LBT 381-249 LFN bullet.  Lyman #2 Alloy

COAL 2.440 

Highwall = 1130 fps

Lever gun = 1085 fps

 

Most important is to slug your barrel and get a properly sized bullet.

Need to figure out your bore size before loading a bunch of rounds. 38-55 can vary from .375 up to .381 and I've heard of even more variations.

Like Assassin says, check bore diameter. Also is this for a lever gun or a single shot??

Really really simple recipes . . . Pick your bullet weight, then APP to the Base of the bullet, crimp it and go.
