i spoke with a guy last week & I mentioned the savage that shoots with smokeless powder, he told me " all ya have to do is cut back on the amount & any of them will shoot it", I'm think just a matter of time before he melts his eyebrows off but really dont know since I've been away from black powder guns so long.

What say you ?? can it be done or has some one here tried it??

I have two buddies who have been shooting smokeless powder in their muzzleloaders for years with no problems. One shoots an Encore and the other shoots a CVA Accura.

It's seldom talked about on open forums for very good reason. Some guns will handle it, some won't. The problem is you really don't know which ones will, and some might do great for 30 shots and then send a nice chunk of steel through your face.

Smokeless powder is an explosive, where as subs have a more even burn rate. If you double load 777 it's going to hurt, if you double load H4198 you could be dead.

Add to all this the many types of smokeless powders that have extremely FAST burn rates i.e. pistol and shotgun powders and you have the potential for bubba loading up 70grains of BlueDot is his Knight Wolverine. That folks takes a lot of time to gather up all the pieces to put Humpty Dumpty in the body bag.

It's not smart and not advisable even for people that know what they are doing.

It can be done, has been done, you just don't ever know when the next shot could go very wrong.

I disagree. They are very meticulous when it comes to weighing their powder charge. I really don't see how a Savage "Smokeless" muzzleloader is any stronger than an Encore or any other inline for that matter.

I have to agree..Not very smart on their part..Big difference between smokeless powder and blackpowder...BIG difference.They have a bigger set of cajones than I...
