I've used 440gr grease groove bullets and 110grs of 2F Old Eynesford in my Alex Henry and that seems to be about right.
I put a card over the powder, then a lube cookie and another card under the bullet.

An 1884 Alex Henry double rifle in my care does fantastic with paper patched soft lead bullets cast from its original mould and also a similar one made by Accurate Molds in Utah. In 75:1 alloy, the bullets weigh 405 grains; in 16:1 alloy they weigh about 395 grains. The gun’s original powder measure throws 130 grains, and after that is in and a milk carton wad is on top, not a lot of room remains in the case. Like many other BPE shooters, I load this gun with Olde Eynsford 1.5FG. It is my morning stand gun during bear season in Pennsylvania
