Here is a list of cases of every kind & the amount of water they will hold. Water is very, very close to Black powder in volume & density so it's a pretty good indication of capacity by volume for B/P.
I have a .50 Hawken carbine ( 24" 1:48 twist BBL) & it likes a 55gr charge with a PRB for plinking & a 95 Gr load for maximum power.
