Need load data

Hello, I bought a powder measure, and now need the data for how many grains to set the cup at..

1860 army 44 ___(min)_____(max) (this is my great grandpas gun,,want to set as light as I can)
1851 navy 36____(min)_____(max) (this is a repro,,,so I can load it up hot)

also,,,,is it normal to have the cylinder powder to go pretty much near the top? So when you ram the ball down,,,it does a compressed charge?

BTW I am using pyrodex P.

Thanks,,
Mike
