Storing a black powder gun loaded

Hello! How can I store my black powder gun or revolver cylinder loaded without getting any issues with the gun itself and the powder? Usually I store my black powder revolver unloaded, cleaned and greased so that it won’t catch any rust.

But if it were to be stored loaded i bet that the grease could contaminate the powder over time. And since the gunpowder is hydroscopic, it may cause rust in the chambers? Will a tight seal around the chambers be enough to keep any moisture out?

How did they do it back in the days?
