I've always heard it was coarser back then too. I've got some vintage cartridges in my collection, but I'm NOT pulling the bullets to find out! I've got a relic 1849 Colt plowed up by my grandfather here back in the early 40's with a loose ball in one chamber, and the powder is definitely coarser than current 3fg.
