Anybody have any issues with using real BP in an inline ?  I have a CVA Buckhorn converted to musket caps and I am planning on using about 100 gr of Olde Eny. in it.  Just wondering if there were any fouling issues that would not crop up in a sidelock.

You should be fine. Swab as needed.

Be aware that there are real full power musket caps and there are musket caps made for "reenactment".   You do not want the reenactment caps, they will not reliably ignite any type of powder.    

How it got this way:

A Mensa candidate lost an eye when a musket cap fragmented during a reenactment:  Yep, the guy was not wearing glasses.  Our "victim" sued CCI who fixed the problem by making very weak musket caps for "reenactment".   RWS soon followed suit; they changed their 1081 caps.   The new RWS 1081 caps are no good either.  

You want the RWS 1218 six winged musket caps, the old CCI four winged caps or the old RWS 1081 caps.

with the real black powder you still may even be ok with those reenactment caps.

You can always switch back to #11 caps too and still have probably close to 100% sure fire ignition with olde eynsford.

I'd start around 80 and give that a try and as Pete said, Swab between shots with a lightly damp patch paying close attention by the breech.

I have used the reenactment caps in my inlines with loose Pyrodex and Goex  BP had no problems so far.
