    Right off the Pyrodex P container label;

    "Use by equivalent volume to FFFG black powder..."

    So you use BP loading data for the .38 Spec. and subsitute the black powder with an equal volume of Pyrodex P. If the loading data calls for FFG, substitute it with an equal volume of Pyrodex RS.

    Simple as that.

    You can't have an air space the case has to be full and lightly compressed.
