    I would have to say he or someone had loaded it twice. One load on top of another load.

    Sounds like the drunk was playing with a lot of smokeless powder.

    Happy New Year, Levi. When you get out let's go chug some Jaggie Bombs.

    I'm sure it depends on Make and Model as well as design but i wonder waht kinda of charge it would take to blow a muzzleloader like that? My CVA will handle 150gr of Pyrodex Pellets(3 pellets) which is considered a magnum muzzleloader charge. That is the biggest load my gun will handle and the biggest i've heard of on any muzzleloader. To me 150gr packs a pretty good punch. What point would be dangerous? Just curious. I would never push the limits of any gun.

    It looks like he put Smokeless Powder in a muzzle loader that was designed for black powder.

    Savage Arms is the only manufactor that makes a muzzleloader made for smokeless powder.
