    9 grains of FFg or FFFg. It fills the case completely, and the bullet then compresses the powder. No commercial BP loads are available, but they're simple enough to hand load.

    I forgot to add that I use this load with Winchester cases, CCI small pistol primers, Goex powder and Pyrodex (both RS and P), and both MagTech 98gr LRN and Hornady 90gr wadcutters. OAL is kept to .930, which compresses the powder quite a bit as well.
