I normally use a 0.030 diameter hole and try to keep the flame channel under 1 1/4 inches long, but I have only shot smokeless powder since 2000!
In a 50 caliber when I shot pyrodex I got good results with White bullets and also Buffalo Bullets.
I have not shot 50 cal since I made my 45 and there I almost only shoot machined sabots and real rifle bullets.
Sorry, not much help here.
