I might consider using one for last ditch SD, as long as it went bang it would serve the purpose if reliable, but I would use the max charge for that, as you need every last bit you can get for that sort of function, I would think. That is for across the room defense, not target groups. Hopefully you don't get problems like blown caps jamming the works at the worst moment. And even though they were capable of the function in historic times, you would consider that the opponent was maybe armed with nothing better, maybe less. I have balked at a conversion cylinder due to cost. Those might allow you to use smokeless loads in a BP frame, but how soon do things loosen up from that, assuming that the guns are probably mild steel not tempered for high pressure loads?
