I think the 45-90 is like an express.  Lighter bullet at faster speeds. 

  

I agree even though I don’t load it as one for my Sharps. I wonder if it was loaded as a standard cartridge in addition to the express loading back in the day. I think, then as now, it would have made an exceptional long range cartridge. I suppose if we could determine the twist rate(s) for period single shots we may have an answer, but it’s past my bedtime.
