Let it dry really well before re-coating, don't try to rush things, especially if it is humid outside.

Longshot, haven't shot it in a quite a while, but I do have a BPCR M1885 in 45/70. I found 405gr cast lead with AA5744 is fun to play with.

Why not? I load lots of stuff, both rifle and pistol in my 550B. Just make sure you set up all the dies properly and go for it. Keep the die plate/toolhead set up in case you need to do more later.
