I weigh my charges as well. 95.5 gr of 777ffg ( iirc, been a while)is 130gr volume. That's what I use in my Optima pro in 45

I remember what kept me away from black powder. Mainly all the LIES that were propagated not that they never happened, 1) Not as frequent as folks claimed 2) Dues for stupidity 3) Lack of knowledge
