Traditionally bp is loaded with a drop tube so powder settles uniformly. Some vibrate the case to settle powder.
Long range BPCR maybe; but drop tubes and vibrators are wholly unnceessary for pistol caliber loads. They are dispensed by a powder measure or dipping with Lee or other powder dippers.

I've been using a Hornady L-N-L progressive press to load BP using smokeless and BP powder measures for years. Also load my shotgun shells on a MEC Sizemaster with an adjustable powder/shot bar.
