How much powder to use?
I've recently aquired repros of both a Colt Navy and a New Army revolver. The pistols came from the previous owner with caps, balls, powder and several different size powder flasks.
I can easily weigh the charge that each flask will "drop". So my question is, how much powder do I want to use in these .44 cal beasties? I have found all sorts of info on the loading procedures, etc, but no one seems to list a range of recomended charges. I'm looking forward to trying these out this weekend, so any help would be appreciated.
