I had never thought about this, but it sure makes sense.Use FFFg powder for your carbine. You need a faster burning powder for the shorter barrel.
I have both long and short barrels, but haven't consider the length when loading my horn.
So, the way I understand it:
1. When you want the max push to the ball, it seems you would want the powder to burn completely in the barrel. So, use a faster-burning powder?
2. When you want flame and smoke, you want unburned powder flying out the muzzle and igniting. And use a slower-burning powder?
So, does the grind actually make much of a difference, or is it more a function of the volume of powder used?
What do y'all think?
