I've seen folks use grits.....there was an 'old-timer' at our old club years ago that loaded them in his .45 ACP for use in bullseye. I don't remember the powder charge he used.
"I expect perdition, I always have. I keep this building at my back, and several guns handy, in case perdition arrives in a form that's susceptible to bullets. I expect it will come in the disease form, though. I'm susceptible to diseases, and you can't shoot a damned disease." ~ Judge Roy Bean, Streets of Laredo

For the Patriots of this country, the Constitution is second only to the Bible for most. For those who love this country, but do not share my personal beliefs, it is their Bible. To them nothing comes before the Constitution of these United States of America. For this we are all labeled potential terrorists. ~ Dean Garrison

I've heard of people using farina (Cream of Wheat) and corn meal. Semolina too maybe, but I'm not sure about grits. Then again, I don't reload or read much about it. I think any old cereal grain that's ground up, but not too fine, would work. You really wouldn't want a dust explosion, if that's even possible in the confined space of a cartridge. I don't think flour mixing in with the powder would be that great anyway, but something coarse can stay put to a degree.
""It may be laid down as a primary position, and the basis of our system, that every Citizen who enjoys the protection of a free Government, owes not only a proportion of his property, but even his personal services to the defence of it, and consequently that the Citizens of America (with a few legal and official exceptions) from 18 to 50 Years of Age should be borne on the Militia Rolls, provided with uniform Arms, and so far accustomed to the use of them, that the Total strength of the Country might be called forth at a Short Notice on any very interesting Emergency." - George Washington. Letter to Alexander Hamilton, Friday, May 02, 1783

A lot of Cap & Ball pistol shooters use cream of wheat to take up space in the chamber so they can download them, Grits are for eating, not wasting on BP pistols.

Hot damn Majer.  You are so right.  How in the heck did you get so educated on fine breakfast cuisine?
Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom.
It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.

I had always just switch to magnum primers when shooting light charges in large cases.

It's not just those .22lr.  Caught this .25ACP case inside a 9mm.  The walnut media had wedges the two cases together.

That's quite the surprise to find during a reloading session! It's a valuable reminder for all of us to stay vigilant and double-check our work.
