Black powder loads, 25-20 Single shot

I recently purchased a Stevens favorite that apparently has been re-chambered for 25-20 ss. How/what should I load Black powder rounds?

    You need a soft lead bullet with a black powder lube like SPG or home-brewed (50/50 crisco- parafin, but there are many recipes).
    Fill the case with 3F black powder leaving the powder level about 1/8 of an inch from the top, seat bullet, it should compress the powder a bit.
    If you want to use jacketed bullets, use 3F American Pioneer Powder.
    You can use as much 3F as you can get in the case and still seat the bullet.
