    I like the video these guys do! although his friend should of had eye protection on because putting powder down a hot barrel without swabbing could cause a flash of the powder and singe your hand or face! Good to know that they can hold up easily to any normal wear and tear if handled properly. The final test sure did blow that sucker up!
    Gun owners must unite in 2016 to defeat the Democratic agenda. ALL Gun Owners get out the vote!

      Looks like they had to put an extraordinary amount of effort into blowing the rifle up. Good for CVA !

        exactly why we should all be careful even shooting modern rounds through vintage guns. I had to buy a pressure plug for my Garand to keep modern ammo from tweaking my op rod
        Why do I carry? Somebody else will pick the day I need my gun, not me.

          Unless of course you have a special muzzle loader that's specifically designed for smokeless. They are supposedly pretty amazing.

          That gun was tougher than I expected. I was curious as to how much smokeless they were really using, so I pulled up the chart. http://www.leeprecision.com/cgi-data/instruct/VMD'S.pdf
