I ended up with my grandfather's old H&R .38 five shot revolver and two boxes of ammo (S&W .38). One box was very old. I fired one shell and found that it was NOT smokeless powder! Four more rounds through the weapon convinced me that the ammo was OK. Comparing it with a new box of ammo, the old stuff (1892) kicked a lot harder and of course belched out a cloud of smoke.
