Default Smokeless powder in a muzzle loader

This is by far one of my most favorite BP related youtube videos! They do so much to this thing and it keeps going and going until they give smokeless powder a try.

Also impressed by the breech plug/drum set up after they shoot the smokeless powder in it.

Its a bit long but I promise, its a great video including FILLING the entire barrel up with BP with just enough room to put the ball in before firing it.

I watched the entire video. Even though it's pretty ridiculous, I think all should watch and listen closely to what they say.

Gee, I guess Wakeman was right.

I see Randy's face in the backgrounds woods of that video, up in a tree. He's hunting with an original CVA Apollo.

I will admit to dry loading one time...got distracted while showing a new ML hunter "how to load a ML". I just told him "that's what you don't want to do"....had to put alittle powder under the nipple to get the ball out. I never let myself get distracted again if I can help it.
