Hawg, several companies loaded the 38 Special with black powder at least until WW I. There is some debate about when it was available commercially with smokeless. Some sources say 1899, others claim not until 1902.

Trivia question... The last American cartridge to be developed with black powder?

The 44 Special in 1907.
