I'm sure this has been asked before, but how do I know where to begin when using Pyrodex P? I've been told that my rifle will probably like 20-25 grains of BP, but I am not sure what the equivalent charge of substitute would be.

If you have a volume measure, Pyrodex and black powder are the same. Eg., 50 gr. volume of black powder = 50 gr. of Pyrodex. Don't weigh Pyrodex to come up with the load you want, measure it.

If you can get some real black powder, you will be much happier in the long run.

Yes,always measure by volume! 20gr Pyrodex P is like shooting 3fg Goex.
