  1. Thanks, I just have an old French Gras 1874 I never fired yet and don't want to fill up the whole case with 80+grains of black powder just yet (what the standard was in 1870’s), want to try 70 grains first but need a filler for the bottle neck cartridge. 70 grains fills up to below the neckline so looking for a filler up to the neckline at least that won’t solidify and create an obstruction or pressure spike
  2. Hi I never tried activated charcoal as a BP cartridge filler yet but sounds like a good idea. Does it work well for bottleneck cartridges too? Does it burn off well?
