I placed some pyrodex 3fg in the flask, set the powder measure for 30 grains, measured out the powder per instructions and got about 22gr into the powder measure instead of the anticipated 30.
Is that 22 grains by weight or volume? Pyrodex is lighter in weight than blackpowder. 30 grains of Pyrodex by volume should weigh about 22 grains.
