Flues model made in 1912. It should be able to be shot with light loads only.

Do not attempt to do load with smokeless powder.

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.

Many companies built them in both black and smokeless powder variants. Remington, Ithaca, H&H, Greener, Wadsworth, etc..

1884. There were a few earlier products. smilar to, but not exactly the same as smokeless powder of today.

there are several typed of powder the most common are black powder and smokeless powder. black powder is very corrosive and burns slower com paired to smokeless and just by the name there acepinaly more smoke were as smokeless gun powder is stronger and faster and cleaner.

When using a muzzle loading gun it is important to ensure that it can handle modern smokeless powder because of the greater amount of force produced by smokeless powder as opposed to using the black powder that the muzzle loader was intended for.

Pour poudre vives means it was made for smokeless powder (not for black powder, in other words it was made after smokeless powder came into common use).

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.

what little smoke that is generated by smokeless powder cartridge,s,hence the name smokeless powder does not effect the ozone.

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).

The Barrett M82 doesn't use black powder - it uses modern smokeless powder.

In 1884 Paul Vielle invented a smokeless powder called Poudre B (short for poudre blancheโ€”white powder. This was used in the Lebel rifle, shown above.

.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)

Black powder, or a black powder substitute such as Pyrodex. Smokeless powder (modern gun powder) should not be used in a traditional muzzle loading firearm.

User Avatar

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.

The principal components may be nitrocellulose, nitroglycerine or nitroguanidine.

It didnโ€™t affect society. Not all things do.

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.

Yes. The more powder the bigger the bang and the faster the bullet moves. The faster the bullet goes, the more heat energy it will generate because of friction, and the initial blast from the powder.

Depends on the cartridge, Early cartridges used black powder, Modern cartridges use smokeless powder, based on nitrocellulose and nitroglycerin. There are hundreds of different smokeless powders that have different recipes, grain shapes, and burning rates.

early firearms were not made with STRONG metal like todays modern firearms

User Avatar

Yes. the model 1893 was made for black powder. Model 1897's were made for smokeless and replaced the 1893. Both black powder and smokeless were used for many years, side by side. People got smart and started only buying smokeless shells, easy to clean.

As used here, grain is a measure of weight- ABOUT 1 gram. Smokeless gun powder is usually grey to dark grey, and may consist of tiny flakes, disks or rods.
