Flues model made in 1912. It should be able to be shot with light loads only.
Black powder is much weaker than smokeless powder. Smokeless powder, for this reason, once invented(much after black powder), replaced black powder in guns. However, black powder is still used in fireworks because the extreme explosive power of smokeless powder would prove too dangerous in fireworks.
No. In general you should never use smokeless powder in a firearm designed specifically for black powder. To do so may be very dangerous. If in doubt, have the gun inspected by a qualified gunsmith and only fire smokeless powder in the gun if a properly qualified gunsmith tells you it is safe to do so.
Black powder is a mixture made by finely integrating potassium nitrate, charcoal and sulfur in the ratio 75:15:10 into each other. Smokeless powder consists primarily of nitrocellulose(also called guncotton) which is a compound made by reacting cellulose(cotton is a pure source, hence the name) with nitric acid with sulfuric acid used as a catalyst. Nitroglycerine, nitroangudine and other additives are also added. Smokeless powder is much stronger than black powder. Smokeless powder is used in guns, to propel bullets. Black powder is used to propel fireworks and was once used in guns(when smokeless powders were not invented).
.30 caliber bullet, 30 grains of blackpowder when it was originally made. Smokeless powder is now used. Actually the 30-30 began life as the 30 WCF (Winchester Center Fire) aka 30 Winchester Smokeless or 30 SMOKELESS. The second 30 refers to 30 grains of smokeless powder. (30 grains of black powder would have been a pretty whimpy load)
No. Mosern .22 shorts are loaded with smokeless powder. .22 short black powder is loaded with just that - black powder. Smokeless powder develops higher pressures than black powder and should not be blindly used without some confirmation that the gun will handle the pressures. Consult a local gunsmith.
dr eq = drams equivalent. Black powder used to be measured in drams, which was a measure of the volume of black powder used in a load (basically the amount used). When smokeless powder came along later, both smokeless powder and black powder existed at the same time for a while. A smaller amount of smokeless powder was equal in power to a larger amount of black powder. To keep things simple shells using smokeless powder were referenced to how many drams of black powder would be needed to produce similar results. This continued into modern times. A shell marked 3 1/4 dr eq is roughly equal to a black powder load of 3 1/4 drams. This allows an idea of how much power a shell has regardless of the actual amount of powder that is inside the shell.
