25-20 Single Shot squib load

I believe this topic has been discussed before, however I wasn't able to locate the discussion. I want to make a low velocity load for my Stevens 44 25-20 SS. I am using a lead 65 grain bullet. I tried using 1 grain of Unique and it works pretty well except Unique fouls the barrel after only a few shots. I want to get to 600 f/s just like the Aguila subsonic 22. The Aguila Super Colibri 22lr subsonic is a very quiet round. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Red Dot or Bullseye should work.  Unique sometimes is like burning dirt.

Trailboss is another to consider, though I have no experience with that powder.

Good luck, and give a report of your outcome.  I might try the same.

I LIKE Unique.
To solve the fouling part (in 405 Win) I use a 3/4" square of paper towel.  Cleans it right up.  SO, maybe a 1/4" square?

Try 1 or 2 grains of Trailboss or IMR4227.  I use Trailboss in all my low pressure loads for gallery shooting.  Ex: 5.0g in .32-40.  Very accurate at 25 yds.
