Black powder doesn't burn it explodes. All of the charge is consumed instantly. As opposed to smokeless that burns at a controllable rate. Be very careful working up loads.
Incorrect sir. Black powder burns and the burn rate is controlled by the granular size. Most common size is 2f, 3f and 4f.

With large volume loads of black powder it's normal to have unburned powder exit the barrel.
