Not sure this is the right place to ask since the CAS crowd are NOT allowed to use the .410 in their matches. But the simple answer is to look on a box of .410 shotshells and it will tell you how much to use. All loads are still listed as DRAM Equivilents of BP. Just use that weight of BP and it should be the appropriate charge. Now be aware it's in DRAMS not grains so you'll need to convert to grains unless you have a scale that weights in both which my electronic does.

I hate to take exception with the Graybeard's generally fine advice but I believe .410 is the exception, I don't think I have ever seen a box of .410s marked with dram equivalents like other shotshells. I would suggest you make or find a volume measure to hold 1/2 ounce of shot and use that same volume of black powder, just as muzzleloaders are normally loaded, equal volumes of powder and shot.

The story of David & Goliath only demonstrates the superiority of ballistic projectiles over hand weapons, poor old Goliath never had a chance.
