I walked into my deer stand with the t/c unloaded. I forgot to snap a couple of caps off to clear the blow hole. At my stand I didnt want to snap them and scare everything off. Sure enough later a big doe came broadside 30 yards off. When I pulled the trigger, the two pellets of Pyrodex ignited, but flew out the barrel like a tracer bullet, one hitting deer in the chest and the other flying up through the trees like a July skyrocket. dont have a clue what happened to the bullet. I think the oil and grease had partially plugged the blow hole and I only got a partial ignition. A good lesson why you always should snap a couple of caps or primers.
