I know that this is likely an impossible to answer question but there are quite a few knowledgeable fellows on here that might have some insight on this. How would blackpowder from the colonial era compare to today's blackpowder in terms of velocity? We all know that today's Goex generally produces slower velocities and pressures than today's Swiss (assuming the same granulation). GENERALLY speaking was the typical powder of that time period slower and dirtier like Goex or faster and less fouling like say Swiss? I'm sure that just like today there were different qualities or grades if you will, just curious if the powders available back then trended in one direction or another.
