Black Powder Cartridge Reloading

Metallic cartridge reloading w/ black powder?

I don't plan to do this at this time, I just want to know, is it possible to reload a metallic (brass) cartridge with black powder?

As ammunition prices go up, if they ever get to 12 bucks a round like they are in the middle east, it might be necessary to improvise components... I want to know how if I ever need to.

Or if ammunition is banned from manufacture, I want to be able to reload with improvised propellant.

I've done this myself, for big bore revolvers. I don't know how well it would work in recoil operated auto-loaders, but it sure would have to gum up the works in any gas-operated weapon.
I've used regular black and Pyrodex both, with excellent results, one just has to be as diligent in cleaning as with any regular black powder weapon.
I've also made Pyrodex 'blanks' for antique and modern weapons for re-enactors that also functioned great.
In fact, I had one brother who had an antique Colt SAA in .44-40 who traded me some of his dearest antique Harley parts for a steady supply of ammo. He wouldn't shoot his collector's piece with modern smokeless cartridges.
