Louis- you may want to re-read what I said. I THINK we are saying about the same thing.

C3;
Yeah, I agree, mostly, and to a point. Not meaning to argue, but I wish it was as clear to me on longarms -- 1 to 1-1/4 the diameter of the bore. Thing is, I think it is a much wider range and gun/caliber related. What would be considered a mild load in a Charleville might look to someone like a double load in a squirrel rifle, but it isn't, if ya see what I mean.

Most of that powder was blown out the barrel of the pistol-unburned. Years ago i fired muzzleloaders with various charges when snow was on the ground. When the charge was too large to burn in the barrel you would see powder on the snow.
