      P/S what revolver do you have and is it a all brass frame ? If so then DO NOT go over 20 grns. of powder .

      I use real black powder, and I use 22grn. and a 457 ball that I pour myself. Here is a lil chart that might help you , My revolver is a 44 .

      SELECTING A BLACK POWDER
      USE BLACK POWDER AND NOTHING ELSE IN ANY MUZZLE LOADING REVOLVER.

      .31 CAL. COLT AND REMINGTON 13 GRAINS FFFg
      .36 CAL. NAVY AND ARMY STYLE 15 TO 22 GRAINS FFFg
      .44 CAL. NAVY AND ARMY STYLES 20 TO 30 GRAINS FFFg
      .58 CAL. MUSKETS 60 GRAINS FFFg
      .69 CAL. MUSKETS 60 GRAINS FFFg

      FOR PISTOL REVOLVERS ONLY
      When loading a cylinder with a ball a small ring of lead should shear from the side of the ball when depressed into the cylinder. If it does not the ball is too small.
      SUGGESTED SIZES FOR REVOLVERS.
      .31 CAL. .315 BALL
      .36 CAL. .375 BALL
      .44 CAL. .451 BALL

      What is the maximum powder charge that you use in your revolver?
      The booklet says like 15 grains, but I have read people using larger powder loads.
