Well, the 303 British cartridge was originally loaded with black powder.
But why you would want to do so today is beyond me.
In effect you can load just about any cartridge with black powder, just do not expect much in the way of performance.
Additionally, there is the mess to clean up afterwards.
I have loaded 45 Colt cartridges with black powder and shot it out of modern revelvers with zero problems, other than cleaning afterwards.
