Yep! I sent one flying out of my Encore a couple years ago. The barrel was fine but it buggered up the breech plug a little. As for me, after I wiped the blood from my brow (scope whoopin), I was fine. It did feel like a tractor trailer hit my shoulder.

Haven't had the pleasure of doing that yet. I've heard enough stories about that to be paranoid about my range rod when shooting. I do find it amusing that one can become so distracted as to forget to pull the ram rod.

That's one of the few things that I have not done, nor am I likely to do, because, ever since I tried to seat some Barnes bullets, I use a converted shotgun cleaning rod, with a perpendicular black plastic handle. If I don't notice that sticking out of my barrel, please have me committed!

Yep - a couple of years ago. I was concentrating on getting a load that would work well and got out of sequence with my loading routine. Knocked me goofy. It drove my right fist square into my nose. No damage to the rifle; not so for the ramrod or my face. I had raccoon eyes for a few days.

Funny how I pay so much more attention to that now. \:\)

I've seen that ramrod thing happen to an Injun one time on some John Wayne movie I was watching with my dad. Only one problem though, the redskin wasn't the one pulling the trigger \:D That'd be a hate crime today. One more, had a buddy that INSISTED that he wanted to shoot my muzzleloader. Well, okay then....he was a pretty sharp dude when it came to working on hot-rods but a little dull on guns. He got a case of magnum eyebrow and it even broke the frames on his mil-spec GI issue birth-conrol glasses...dork \:D Darin, buddy you know who you are. \:D
