Looking on line, I saw 150 gr max charge. That's a lot of powder and I wouldn't think you need anywhere close to that. I shoot 110-grs of black powder in my 54 cal. Most shooters today are shooting 90-110 in 50 cals. There are a few shooting 150 using 3 pellets but I don't see the need.

Okay so 110 loose powder with a 250g bullet would be plenty?

plenty and maybe you will adjust a bit lower depending on what the rifle prefers.

I'd start with 90gr pyrodex RS, Winchester 777 primer and see how that goes.

not all primers are the same.

You have full strenght, mild and low temp primers " typically called muzzleloading primers"

Primers matter when it comes to accuracy.
