When shooting pistol at Friendship we always used 20grs at 25yds and 25 at 50yds [ to keep the same sight picture ]. That was in the 70s, and now 40 some years latter I got the bug to shoot my 1858 Remington revolvers. I chopped the barrel at 3 1/4" and rounded the grip to give me a birds head grip on one of my pistols. I also bought a Taylors 45 Colt cylinder to shoot cartridge shells. It's still fun to shoot cap&ball. This thread kind a got me wondering how much powder to burn, so I guess I'll be loading up 6 shots with different powder charges and shooting over the snow to answer my question. Should be fun.
