I wouldn't recommend a load if it wasn't safe. 12-15 gr is a .36 caliber load, and even that would be a light load.
Are you just trying to make me look bad Bruce, or do you know so little about C&B revolvers?
Muley not all Cap and ball revolvers are the same, I would rather see a person light-load their weapon and live to tell the tale vs. over-charging it and possibly be injured or killed.
I know you were only trying to help out but in ALL cases it's better to let the "Weapon Manufacturer" OR the "Weapons Correction Manual" convey the info.,,, maybe next time you could just explain how to get the corrected info, that probably would have been the best thing to do anyway.
P.S. I dont have to try to make you look bad muley, you have mirrors for that!
Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the outcome of the vote.
