I need some data for reloading modern shotgun shells with black powder.

    The old, original load for a muzzle loading shotgun was: equal amounts (by volumn) of shot and powder. It worked well for me. I have never loaded black powder shotshells. The Dixie Gun Works catalog lists 92 grains FFg, 1 1/4 oz. shot for a 12 Ga. breechloading shotgun.
