Rifleman is right. Unfortunately substitutes like J Shockey are inconsistant in my tests. A 38c spent cartridge ( I always thought held close to 25 grains of BP. If you use J Shockey you need at least 35 g for a 44c. 30 to 35 grains of 3f pyrodex and 25 to 30 grains of goex. Pyrodex seems to be the best so far of substitutes. Some swear by J Shocky for its easy cleaning--but not consistent. I will not order anymore of J Shockey. Hey by the way--check out my post on the "For sell" After Christmas I might want to get rid of some treasures at GREAT Price. Thanx
