Personally, I like to load black powder with 60gr. behind the 405gr. bullet. I do swab the bore with soapy water after every 3-5 rounds tho and I don't mind the cleanup after I'm done shooting. The bullet diameter you are using is OK. I load .460 and using Lee dies does occasionally shave a little off. I suppose I could bell the case mouth more. I also have a 1884 rifle. If you scroll down or search this website, you will find alot of smokeless loads.
