If you’re a hunter you know this time of year is prime time for muzzleloader hunting. And if you hunt with a muzzleloader, you (hopefully) understand the nuances of these rather awesome firearms. Hunting with a muzzleloader is both fun and a great way to extend your hunting season, especially since some states have a longer muzzleloader season than they do rifles. If you’ve never tried it, I recommend it; firing a muzzleloader does involve some hefty recoil, but the results are well worth it.

In this video YouTuber Iraqveteran8888 takes a look at what not to do with your muzzleloader. For example, don’t use the wrong powder. If you’ve ever wondered what would happen if you loaded your muzzleloader with the wrong powder, well, take a look at this video to find out. Saying the results are disastrous would be a bit of an understatement.

Who here hunts with a muzzleloader?

    I have a CVA Bobcat in .54 with 80 gr BP that is fun to shoot.
    I think the max load for it is around 100 gr BP. It works best with the 230 gr round ball the buffalo bullets and such are hard as heck to load even with yellow lube.
    Range is good at 100 yards anything more than that is howitzer shooting.
    That satisfying KaBOOOM and a cloud of smoke are cool to deliver.

    Isn't it against the law to make pipe bombs?! Anyway, it was fun to watch.
