Default Black Powder 44 special and 45 Long Rounds ?

Does anyone know the performance of the original black powder cartridges of 44 special and 45 long colt ? Were they hotter than today's smokeless load ?

no, not as hot. BP has a subsonic detonation speed. Very olds guns proofed for BP may be unsafe with modern smokeless loadings- different pressure curve.
