Anyone shooting smokeless powders in their muzzle loaders???
A friend of my buddy is trying it in his new Omega...
I told him it was a very bad idea...
Hope he doesn't get hurt

    Not smart. What is he trying to prove.
    He better get a Savage, or else get some real good medical insurance. And don't forget the disability insurance.

    He probably figures that modern steel will contain the smokeless powder, but he's forgetting that the gun is designed for black powder pressure levels.
    There are only two more questions you need to ask him:
    Does he have a good medical insurance plan?
    Is his life insurance paid up?

    Personally i think its a bad idea, smokeless powder has a much higher pressure when ignited, i suppose it would work, but you would want to use VERY LITTLE powder, but yeah, if there is something you like of his, ask him if you can have it before he goes out.

    He's playing Russian Roulette with 5 chambers loaded.

    Seriously try and stop him if he hasn't done it already.
