    Hello all,
    I have searched several forums and the holy google to no avail. I'm looking for a good chart that outlines the difference (if there is one) in loading loose powder substitues and how it compares to real black powder.

    My ideal chart would have something like:
    (please disregard the BOGUS numbers here, i have no clue what it actually would be)

    Brand substitute / # grains = Black Powder / # grains *EDIT! .44 cal with .454 ball loaded*
    Bogus Example #1: Pyrodex P / 36 = Goex FFFg / 40
    Bogus Example #2: Tripple 7 / 30 = Goex FFFg / 40

    Does such a chart exist?

    mec has posted many chronograph velocity figures in the past, and I've reposted quite a few of them since, but they can be model specific. And these below don't include any of his .36 or .31 caliber velocities or the data that he's posted along with photos of guns & the other bullets and loads that he's chronographed.

    For example:
