Default 200 gr FTX (460 S&W) for 45 LC

Since we are in times when bullet substitutes become necessary, I have to ask whether the 200 gr Hornady FTX @.452 for 460 S&W could be used as a 45 LC, particularly for Taurus Judge or Henry Big Boy, for which OAL is not critical. I note that the new 45 Colt Critical Defense is down to 185 gr FTX in bullet weight and style, so my question seems reasonable to me. I expect it would be a higher velocity round with maybe some special powder considerations. Any advice? Suggested loads? I have Power Pistol, Unique, Clays, Bullseye, Green Dot in sufficient supply to load the 500 bullets in question.
