"bear in mind that most if not all of the Ballard guns used cast iron frames and are suitable for Black Powder Only."

I've heard stories over the years about Ballard receivers failing to stand up even when using Du Pont bulk smokeless powders even though they generated almost identical pressures as black powder.
