What kind of pistol do you have that has a touch hole? I don't consider the nipple of a cap-and-ball pistol to be a "touch hole." It's covered by a cap, and as the round is fired the hammer holds the cap in place. How much pressure do you think is going to be lost? And what makes you think that suggested/recommended loads haven't already taken that into account.?

Lastly, what pistol do you have that takes 40 grains of black powder?
