The Perfesser has excellent points (does a job on his hats though).  You've stumbled on something that works well for you and your guns.  Stick with it.  I've been using Breakfast Food for filler for years and years.  Cream-0-Wheat just works super well.  Since Cream-0-Wheat doesn't compress, makes just an excellent filler to produce compression with BP.

I'm still learning. Even at 70 years old, and I welcome ALL input. I've shot this load so far in only one six-shooter. Haven't tried the rifle yet, but I expect it to work.

You make a good point. Pretty much the same conclusion that I came to. Also, cream of wheat is less costly than Goex, so this will let me stretch out my supply of powder.

Oh yes, cow IS cheaper than Goex!
I am certainly cheap frugal, and try to be pragmatic practical

I haven't shot COW as a filler in years but do recall that it tended to scrub the bore and I had less fouling. It just meant that I needed another flask to pore the COW on top the powder. Woe to he who gets the flasks mixed up. Don't ask me how I know that. Uh, he was a "friend".  ::)

I have now loaded about 300 .45 Colt cartridges with Goex fff and cream of wheat. I am a bit amazed at just how fast a guy can go through just one pound of powder. I have more brass, and bullets, and powder, but I have depleted my supply of large pistol primers. I am still okay, for now.
